Sherwood PS Documentary

Student shot documentary about equity

Sherwood PS Documentary

We were provided funding through the Ontario Arts Council for the 2013-2014 school year to do 5 different video projects within the Durham District School Board. Each school received 20 hours of Colin and Carla’s time where they taught students about film making, shared their story as a self employed artist and brought in lots of video gear. We worked with the students at Sherwood PS to make a documentary about ‘equity’. They were given their own cameras to work with and learned about camera angles, filmmaking techniques, lighting and they filmed their own documentary. All of the material was shot by the students and the final film was edited by Empty Cup Media.
These projects are a lot of work but are incredibly rewarding. With each group there are always a handful of students who thrive with video projects and we’re there to nurture their enjoyment.
