Filmmaking, Filmmakers, and Films: The Filmmaker-in-the-Schools Approach.
Hardwick, Jon William
The purpose of this study was to discuss ideas on the nature of filmmaking, filmmakers, and viewers; provide a philosophy of teaching filmmaking for art education; survey the growth of filmmaking-in-school curriculums; show the development and operation of the National Endowment for the Arts and Office of Education Filmmakers-in-the-Schools Project; present a detailed analysis and evaluation of the New Mexico Project; and present some findings, conclusions, and recommendations on the teaching of filmmaking for the future. Data used in this study were assembled from state and national filmmaking files, published and unpublished materials, and photographs of film footage produced during the New Mexico project. A discussion of filmmaking, filmmakers, and film viewers was presented, focusing on the magic of filmmaking for the individual, the influence of the independent filmmaker upon recent trends in filmmaking, and a description of the new films' viewers. An approach to the filmmaking experience and a method of teaching filmmaking is presented, based on a humanistic-experiential framework philosophy for art education. (Author/TS)
