Back by popular demand! Are you a student at Kent State University? Are you interested in learning how to create an influential documentary about the environmental issues facing our local region? Are you excited to expand your work outside the classroom? Join us for our 3rd round of Environmental Media, a course designed to allow you, the student, the ability to produce a high quality environmental documentary to be used in educating the campus and community about solutions to our area’s most pressing environmental concerns.
Through the sponsorship of the H. W. Hoover Foundation, and collaboration with the University of Miami Florida’s Arnold Center for Confluent Media Studies, students are provided with state of the art filming and editing tools and equipment. You will also work side by side with award winning documentary filmmakers, and specialists in news reporting and aquatic biology. Though we welcome and encourage seasoned film makers, no experience is necessary to take advantage of this unique opportunity. [And hey, it's an upper-division class to boot!]
As part of this class you will learn about environmental issues facing the region, including important facts and terminology, and partner with a community expert on the subject of your choice. Working with your team and community experts, you will develop a short, effective documentary, highlighting not only the environmental issues of the region, but also some of the leading solutions. Your documentary will premier on campus, on the web, and in a variety of public appearances – including being entered into the annual Canton Film Fest.
This course is limited to 16 students, so don’t delay. Class is scheduled for Fridays, 11:00am – 2:00pm.
