Film Study Class

My students need a projector to get a theatrical experience in their film studies class.

My Students

Students have gotten away from the building blocks of film. They look for computerized effects instead of story. They turn up their noses at classics. They stream instead of enjoying the theatrical experience. They need to see where it all began, and they need to do it the right way.

My students come from various backgrounds.

We have well to do students and we have refugees. But regardless of where my students come from outside of school, they come together inside school. We are part of the largest city in the state of New Hampshire and we struggle to provide a lot of needs, let alone wants. Students, regardless of where they live, should have the chance to receive the very best.

My Project

Film studies is an opportunity to share the history of film without sacrificing the aspects of film students love. The best way to present these timeless films is by doing our best to recreate a theatrical experience, and to do that we need a projector. When one is dissecting Hitchcock's use of montage or Welle's storytelling, one shouldn't do it by pointing out cuts on a 32" screen. The ability to project our films will change the way students see them and break them down.

As we continue to find new ways to engage students in our schools we need to make sure we have the tools necessary to get the job done.

Film studies has a chance to be a class students break down the door to get into. Film studies will be a class where students get to see movies they didn't know existed and learn how those movies have shaped the films they know and love. To see movies as tools for storytelling is crucial. Help us do that.
