Eli L. is a 3rd grade Research Fellow at Baden Academy Charter School. He dreams of creating 6-Dimensional Film experiences. (A cinematic experience that allows the movie-goer to be fully immersed by actually entering the film.) His project this year was to create a documentary of the first year of the Media Lab. He collected over fourteen hours of film footage using a several borrowed video and still cameras before purchasing a Canon Vixia HF R300. Footage was downloaded into the Media Lab’s Mac and edited in iMovie.
Eli’s mentor, Susan Howard, visited the lab in June to help with final editing. Susan directs the youth media program at Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
Eli L., followed the journeys of the research fellows and the process of transforming an old science lab into the new Baden Academy Media Lab. Take a moment to experience his film and share your comments in the Youtube comment section!
