Part of the Cloud Cover series, Film School is a program aimed at students and teachers, designed to encourage experimentation through the use and adaptation of new technology. We hope that by doing so, we will empower student voices by applying aesthetic concepts and storytelling skills while also fostering the development of visual and technical language skills. In 2015 Film School worked with Kasuun Elementary and Chinook Elementary in Anchorage. Now at Trailside Elementary, Film School is working with 19 students to create their own stories that will be shared with their peers at an in school assembly, and online on the museum website.
