Youth and Film. A Report on Through Our Eyes.
Brokering, P. Beth
This document describes a demonstration project in film education, employment training, and research which included an education and employment training program offered to 26 economically disadvantaged youths ranging in age from 14 to 19. For nine months, these students met for four hours each working day to work both on individual personal films, and on issue related films produced by the group. Concurrently, a full-time researcher developed and utilized quantitative and qualitative instruments to examine connections between experiential filmmaking education and its impact on participants' self-development and attitudes relating to media, work, and the educational process. This report includes information on the development of the project and student recruitment; the backgrounds of individual students, including pre- and post-interview data; curriculum and training methodology; research issues and instruments; and evaluation procedures and program outcomes. A formal evaluation written by an outside consultant concludes the report and supplementary materials are appended. (Author/LLS)
