Community Video Storytelling Project Nicole
This video was created as part of the AYV program at Meridian Hill Pictures.
This Spring 2015 semester, 3rd grade students from Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School worked with 3 teaching artists from Meridian Hill Pictures and 3 Mundo Verde PCS teachers to learn about documentary film production with iPads to film short stories in their school neighborhood. Through their filming, the students wanted to explore the open-ended question: "What is the past, present, and future of the Mundo Verde School community?" The students also created a physical map that pinpoints where they filmed each community story with QR codes attached to the map. The idea here is that this is a "transmedia" experience where the community can scan those points with a QR code on an iPad or mobile device to view the videos, and actually experience these stories at the specific points around the school they were filmed.
