It has been a phenomenal year of facilitating the arts at the awesome Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry. I have learned so much – especially about making films. We humbly began here, and within one iteration, we have taken off (see films below).
Of course, there is still so much learning to do. Overall though, these students worked incredibly hard to put together high production value art on almost no budget. Indeed, the goal is to make it to the pros and generate revenue. This will take various forms next year and the skills that we have acquired making these productions has us on the right trajectory. I can only imagine where we’ll be in a few years time.
Working on a giant production with so many moving parts is a tremendous vehicle for learning important cognitive processes and competencies as well as a great deal of professionalism. The key to a successful future is being able to accelerate learning and build a team of incredible talent who are super nimble that can stay ahead of the giant changes that are happening in the world.
Please watch these films below. They are proof of how far students can push and accelerate their learning if given the opportunity. I am honored to have been embroiled in the creative and collaborative process of making art with these talented young artists.
Recently, The Bag made it as a finalist in the Highway 61 International Film Festival. Congratulations!
