ARTS INTEGRATION WORKSHOP

FILMMAKING - Inspire Creative Storytelling Using Film

Led by Filmmaker Erahm Christopher

This intensive and interactive workshop for educators will teach you how to inspire creativity in the classroom with film. Using interactive discussions, multi-media examples and hands-on activities, Erahm Christopher will lead a fun, fast-paced session that will challenge the way you see and hear films. During the first part of the program he will illustrate how different creative elements work together in a movie to create a compelling story so you can teach your students how to formulate solid creative concepts. Christopher will showcase several educational projects he created with students (grades 4th – 12th) to demonstrate how he inspired creativity, encouraged collaboration and built awareness toward important issues using story and film driven projects. Throughout the second part of the program you will engage in two collaborative exercises that will challenge you to work in small teams to create unique stories on paper and with images. The mediums Christopher will cover throughout the program will include animation, stop-motion, documentary and scripted live-action. This session is intended for educators who are curious about how to use film in the classroom and who are interested in inspiring students to be passionate, socially aware, and creative storytellers.
