The Camera as an Agent for Social Change
KHC FT 101
We start with the presumption that students enrolling in this course believe in promoting a just and fair society, and wish to learn to use filmmaking skills to expose and address injustices in our Global Village. We explore the historical and theological foundations that compel people to promote social justice. Individually, students will explore and select a social issue of importance to him or her. Students will then each create a video "Mash-Up" using clips from sources like YouTube and other websites. For the final project each student will research, write and produce a short video about a social issue. The goal of the final project is to change the way people perceive the selected issue and highlight ways in which positive changes can occur. No previous filmmaking skills are necessary; students will be given training as part of the course.
