Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI)

Museum of the Moving Image, Animation Workshop 2018. C.S. 111Q -. from Colectivo Piloto on Vimeo.

In this course students are introduced to principles of animation as well the software tools and equipment they will be using to make their stop-motion animation projects.

During the 2018 edition of this program students learn how to make stop motion animation relevant to issues in the everyday life and world issues by using the UN Rights of the Child as a theme. Under this premise students learn how to use diverse stop motion techniques as a medium to tell stories in the most effective way getting across the themes that they are learning about.

The Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) provides curriculum-based educational experiences to approximately 50,000 students each year, as well as an array of dynamic, engaging tours, talks, workshops, and screenings for children, teens, families, adults, and seniors.

This annually program is grateful to Council Member Costa Constantinides, Council Member Daniel Dromm, Council Member Ben Kallos, Council Member Daneek Miller, and Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer, and supported by Hearst Foundation and Lotos Foundation.

Bullying Isn’t Nice

Students at the West Prep Academy talk about bullying. Bullying is aggressive behavior that is intentional and that involves an imbalance of power or strength. Often, it is repeated over time and can take many forms. In many respects, research on bullying prevention is still in its infancy. Although researchers have documented success of some comprehensive programs in reducing bullying, we still have much to learn about which aspects of these programs are most important*.

This video have been created and directed by Pablo Herrera, with Alex Faoro, Kent Jackman, Nolan Padilla, Nathael Louis and Shonda Westbrook, through a series of after school workshops developed with more than 70 students at the West Preparatory Academy in Harlem, New York City.

Reel Works Teen Filmmaking, the organization behind this after school program at the “West Prep,” has been founded in Brooklyn 20 years ago. Reel Works serves over 800 youth annually from middle school through high school and beyond, developing them as young artists and citizens and helping them graduate, get into college, and launch careers in media. It’s a powerful combination that changes young lives while creating startling and original films that have been seen by millions of viewers worldwide.
