Summer '72 Youth Film/Media Workshop. Final Report.
An evaluation of the videotapes produced by the film/media workshop, held in the South Bronx area of New York City in the summer of 1972, was conducted. The workshop sought to broaden the communication skills and improve the self-concepts and aspirations of educationally and emotionally deprived black and Puerto Rican youngsters. Three groups of students were taught to make tapes; two tapes of each group were evaluated by 20 raters on film technique, the communication of useful content, and the generation of new ideas and feelings. The quality of film techniques was rated highest, followed by content value and the communication of ideas. This was regarded as logical since technical skills are learned more readily than the abstract ability of how to convey feelings, ideas, and facts. Inter-film, inter-group and intra-group differences in quality were noted, perhaps due to the individual topics selected. It was concluded that the overall project achieved its basic goals. (PB)
