‘MOVING PICTURES’ WORKSHOP
GROOMING HIGH SCHOOL
FILMMAKERS AT UH JUNE 18-20
The next George Lucas is not en route to Earth from a galaxy far,
far away, nor will the second coming of Steven Spielberg be hatched
in a dinosaur-filled theme park. The great filmmakers of tomorrow,
however, might be right here in Houston.
The University of Houston’s School of Communication and WonderWorks,
a non-profit organization offering pre-college learning experiences
in the fine arts, are teaming up to present “Moving Pictures,”
a summer workshop teaching both film production and appreciation.
This workshop is open to students in grades 10 -12 and will be conducted
June 18 – July 20.
“Students will learn how films are developed and created,
and each student will have an opportunity to express their own vision
through individual filmmaking projects,” said Keith Houk,
UH clinical professor of communication and Moving Pictures instructor.
“They’ll also learn how to make a film with a limited
budget. By not relying on expensive cameras or special effects,
students can utilize their imaginations.”
The School of Communication will provide the equipment and UH’s
student newspaper, The Daily Cougar, is providing space for editing
as the school is undergoing summer renovations.
During the film appreciation component of “Moving Pictures,”
students will view contemporary and classic movies in the UH Gerald
D. Hines College of Architecture’s theater. Films to be screened
include “Citizen Kane,” “The Godfather,”
“City of God,” “Breathless” and “Casablanca.”
Guest speakers include Charles Dove of Rice Cinema among others.
