Check out creations from our students and staff across the District! The fourth Annual AISD Film and Photography Festival is set for May 3 at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center (1865 Aldine Bender Rd, Houston, TX 77032).
The festival provides an authentic venue where students can show their knowledge of today’s media and technology. Students work on projects that develop high-order thinking skills and problem-solving techniques. The media projects also develop team-building and cooperative communication skills.
Students who have a passion for the moving image — animation, and film — put their skills and creativity to the test as they developed projects of their own.
Earlier in the spring semester, the Aldine Broadcast Network digital learning specialists and the visual arts photography teachers collaborated with the Houston Cinema Arts Society. They held a two-day filmmaking workshop in February at the Bamberg Professional Development and Resource Center. The knowledge gained by students that attended the workshop is evident in the work they submitted for the contest.
These young creators have written, directed and acted in their short films. Animation students conceptualized, developed storyboards and created their innovative digital animated short films. They are all vying for a chance to win.
The judging committee is still reviewing the elementary to high school entries. Judges will score works for writing and concept as well as the quality of craft (i.e. filmmaking process, technical execution).
Snippets of the finalists’ films will be shown at the festival.
Students also used photography to capture their unique perspective of the world. Their creative and inspiring photographs will make you want to stop and study them. Judges have their work cut out for them with more than 475 student works submitted from more than 60 percent of the campuses.
In its second year, the Staff Photo category had nearly 100 employees that submitted photographs.
Arrive early to check out the Digital Photography Exhibit at the festival. See the talent as well as the diverse work and interests of the AISD community.
The top three winners in each category will receive medals.
This is an excellent opportunity to see works from our talented students and staff. Everyone will enjoy the film festival-style showcase.
The FREE event is open to the general public. The Nimitz High School “Admiral” student broadcasting team alongside the Aldine Broadcast Network will stream the festival live on AldineTV.com.
Thank you to the Instructional Technology Department, Visual Arts Department, and the Aldine Education Foundation for underwriting the festival.
