“I made an experimental film which follows my normal school day and my thoughts about it. I wanted to make it because my education is probably the biggest part of my life now, and I think a lot of high school-aged students can probably relate.”

Watch Rachel’s personal film, “My Life In A Day.”

This week students started editing footage for their personal films. We are using the program Final Cut Pro.

Students are exploring a range of topics in their films:

Teen girls and self-esteem
Happiness
Self-love
Peer pressure around sex
Mixed feelings about high school
Perceptions around Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)
Standardized Testing in the college admissions process
and more….

We will post videos on our blog in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
