Six middle school students from MS 325 in the Bronx, New York were taught the fundamentals of film making from story-boarding to editing in a semester long after school program. They showed us what “The Bronx is” through interviews in the community, self-portraits, playful camera techniques, and serious discussion of violence in their schools and in their communities. We see the Bronx as a spectrum of beauty and chaos through the eyes of these inquisitive youth.
A Note from Mr. Kelly, Principal of MS325
“The video presentation by students who participated in the New School Global Video Letter Project was stunning. While I’ve passed the self-effacing crews as they passed to and fro, weekly, after-school, I was not prepared for the quality of their edited work…
It was compelling…a sort of rough but honest portrayal of the Bronx by young videographers.”
