Recently, Marianne Petite came to my class at NYU SKILLS to teach us about film making. She came on the same day we were having our publishing party, because we had just finished writing and reading poetry. Each student was given a small video camera that we can borrow from ITP. ITP is a multimedia production center at the TiSCH School Of The Arts at NYU, which is where Marianne works. The cameras were so cool they came with a little tripod that you can put the cameras on, and we all had a great time. We had the chance to play around with the cameras and film each other in the classroom.
The project is for my class, so we can learn about video blogging. I'm the only one in my class who has experience in blogging since I have my own blog. The point of the video blog is to have each student videotape something they are interested in, and then write about it.
I can't wait to continue working with Marianne and the rest of my class on our projects.
I have included a link below to ITP which explains what the center is all about.
This is a picture of my class fooling around with the cameras we got from ITP.
