This month, students at Summit Rainier (San Jose) had opportunities to explore their interest in film production and acting during Expeditions. In partnership with Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana (MACLA) in downtown San Jose, students took a Film and Production class taught by a local filmmaker. Students wrote, filmed, produced and edited a film over the course of two weeks. An example of the one of the films students put together is a powerful documentary, Spectrum, that explores gender identity in the communities. Check it out below.
In the Modern Acting Class, students were taught by local playwrights and actors in San Jose in partnership with the School of Art and Culture. Students learned about TV action, blocking, lighting, and acting, all necessary to create these short films like "Saber Fight," starring Kai P. and Amira S. Enjoy watching it below!
