Students filming
Digital Planet is a week-long film workshop for teens held at the Field Museum and sponsored by Pearson Foundation‘s New Learning Institute. In this workshop, teens meet with a scientist who is an expert in their field to discuss a given scientific topic. This year, students produced videos on based upon Dr. Janet Voight’s deep sea dives dives in the submersible “Alvin” and the creatures she discovered at the bottom of the ocean.  Students  planed, filmed, and edited a series of videos on this topic.  I was brought in to teach basic filmmaking skills and provide creative guidance throughout their filmmaking process. Check out the student’s excellent work!
