Digital Media II: Inspire Action Through Video
In Digital Media II: Inspire Action through Video, upper school students create a series of videos that encourage positive social change. This year, their videos focused on bridging gaps between Deaf and Hearing communities, combating racism, sharing classmates’ empowering stories, and making connections between historical and current activism efforts.
Each student began the year by researching and pitching an idea for their series. They took feedback they received from their peers, fine-tuned their concepts, and began creating vlogs, profiles, calls to action, and tutorials centered around their topics. At the outset of each project, students completed case studies to learn strategies for creating compelling videos in different genres. From there, they scripted and created shooting plans, recorded their footage, and crafted their stories and messages in Adobe Premiere Pro, a professional video editor. Here’s a small sample of the inspiring work they created:
