Check out our films on our class weblog, http://lclprod.wordpress.com. You can also see the research and raw interview footage for our documentaries we created this year by visiting our Documentary Project Wiki: http://studentdocs.wikispaces.com. And Here are some photos from our recent 4th annual Film Festival at The American Film Institute: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mrmayo/sets/72157630012875844

Joel Malley invites you to visit:
Central Films where you'll find videos from Cheektowaga Central's Mass Media and Film Production classes, which can best be described as a creative nonfiction writing workshop where we develop our writing into film projects. Visit our Vimeo group http://vimeo.com/groups/centralfilms to watch our films. If you have any questions, contact Joel at jmalley@ccsd-k12.org

Paul Allison was so inspired by George Mayo’s “conversation” at Educon 2.4 the last weekend of January http://educon24.org/conversations/Empowering_Students_Through_Documentar... that we invited him and his filmmaking colleague, Joel Malley to join us for this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers. (Please subscribe: http://teachersteachingteachers.org/?feed=rss2 )teachers283

George and Joel talk about their work with students making student-directed documentaries on self-chosen topics. Scott Shelhart also joins to ask questions from an elementary school teacher’s perspective and to show us a couple of videos made by George's middle school students and Joel's high school students.
