Film-Making as a School Activity.
Beal, J. David
CITE Newsletter, v2 n3 p3-7 May 1969
Fiction film production--begun several years ago to stimulate the participation of all students in dramatic and creative activities--has become a vital part of a school program, involving project organization and interdepartmental cooperation. The English department initiates the project, which provides ample opportunities for promoting linguistic skills through writing stories, scripts, captions, film credits, publicity articles, and letters; related skills are library research, spoken film narration, and editing. The ultimate involvement of the whole school is necessary, however, to supply actors, artists, camera and lighting technicians, costume makers, property and set teams, and sound effects specialists, thus encouraging all pupils to gain a fuller understanding of mass media communication.
