The Female Voice from The Saratoga Film Academy (Middle & High School)


Loving this new course from the Saratoga Film Academy, The Female Voice (for Middle & High School students) which runs from February 3, 2016 – April 17, 2016.

This 10-week, all-girls, filmmaking class explores the media’s portrayal of girls in tv, movies, marketing, news, politics, music and more.  The class kicks off with a special event for students and parents, which includes a screening of the documentary Miss Representation followed by a discussion moderated by local filmmakers.

The discussion will continue in the classroom to encourage students to examine how the media influences our culture and shapes our collective social consciousness.  They will voice their opinions on how they would like to see females better portrayed and identify solutions for the media to improve.

The students will work in pairs or teams to develop a narrative that best represents them, their voices, and their unique perspectives.  Throughout the 10 weeks, each group will take their story through the process of scripting, pre-production, production, and post-production to produce a short film.

The class will close with a special event screening of all of the students’ films, for the parents and families.

The class will run from February 3, 2016 – April 17, 2016 on Wednesdays or Sundays, 4pm-6pm at the Saratoga Independent School.
