Write! Shoot! Edit!: The Complete Guide to Filmmaking for Teens

Write! Shoot! Edit!: The Complete Guide to Filmmaking for Teens
Patz, Deborah S., 1963-

Today's digital technology allows teens to produce short films with enviable accessibility. But there is a darker side to today's technology, too: the expectation to live and share your life online, to become an instant success with your first creations. Imagine being free to experiment and play with the medi-um, with a mentor beside you helping you craft solid, professional work that never looks like a home movie. Industry pro Deborah Patz is that mentor.Much like writers pen journals they don't publish (aka "writing practice," as taught by Natalie Gold-berg), Write! Shoot! Edit! mentors teens in "first filmƯmaking" -- crafting complete, scripted movies in a safe place free from public exhibition and scrutiny, experimenting with the medium, and discovering one's own visual storytelling voice.You want to direct and edit, but your friend wants to write? Not a problem. Don't read the book in order! Just follow the path. Write! Shoot! Edit! is written in three distinct and intertwining paths, so you can experience the book as you want to: as a writer, director / DOP, or editor.Start making scripted films today so that you can be the overnight success of tomorrow!

Now or Never!: 54th Massachusetts Infantry's War to End Slavery

Now or Never!: 54th Massachusetts Infantry's War to End Slavery
Shepard, Ray Anthony

Here is the riveting dual biography of two little-known but extraordinary men in Civil War history George E. Stephens and James Henry Gooding. These Union soldiers not only served in the Massachusetts 54th Infantry, the well-known black regiment, but were also war correspondents who published eyewitness reports of the battlefields. Their dispatches told the truth of their lives at camp, their intense training, and the dangers and tragedies on the battlefield. Like the other thousands of black soldiers in the regiment, they not only fought against the Confederacy and the inhumanity of slavery, but also against injustice in their own army. The regiment's protest against unfair pay resulted in America's first major civil rights victory; equal pay for African American soldiers. This fresh perspective on the Civil War includes an author's note, timeline, bibliography, index and source notes. .

To Look A Nazi in the Eye: A Teen's Account of A War Criminal Trial / by Kathy Kacer With Jordana Lebowitz

To Look A Nazi in the Eye: A Teen's Account of A War Criminal Trial / by Kathy Kacer With Jordana Lebowitz
Kacer, Kathy, 1954-

"The true story of nineteen-year-old Jordana Lebowitz's experience attending the war criminal trial of Oskar Groening. Groening worked at the Auschwitz concentration camp and became known as the "bookkeeper of Auschwitz." In 2015 he stood trial in Germany for being complicit in the deaths of more than 300,000 Jews. A granddaughter of Holocaust survivors, Jordana had travelled to Europe to visit Auschwitz. But she was not prepared for what she would see and hear at Oscar Groening's trial, including how such an ordinary seeming man--who at first glance reminded her of her grandfather--could be part of such despicable cruelty. Listening to Groening's testimony and to the Holocaust survivors who came to testify against him, Jordana came to understand that by bearing witness she gained the knowledge and legitimacy to stand in the footsteps of the survivors and to pass their history on to the next generation."--Provided by publisher.

The 57 Bus

The 57 Bus
Slater, Dashka

"One teenager in a skirt. One teenager with a lighter. One moment that changes both of their lives forever. If it weren't for the 57 bus, Sasha and Richard never would have met. Both were high school students from Oakland, California, one of the most diverse cities in the country, but they inhabited different worlds. Sasha, a white teen, lived in the middle-class foothills and attended a small private school. Richard, a black teen, lived in the crime-plagued flatlands and attended a large public one. Each day, their paths overlapped for a mere eight minutes. But one afternoon on the bus ride home from school, a single reckless act left Sasha severely burned, and Richard charged with two hate crimes and facing life imprisonment. The case garnered international attention, thrusting both teenagers into the spotlight." --Amazon.com
