Out with the Old, In with the New

Kurt's Music Awareness/Piano Lab makes way for the
brand-new Film class this January at Cherokee HS, and
we have spent many hours changing things about. Flats
from the old HS were brought over, felt applied to one
side and black paint to the other, to separate the viewing
area from the lecture/discussion area. The screen was built
from a piece of the old glass beaded screen, stretched over
a 1 X 4 wooden frame, stapled in place and then hung. A
traveler rod hangs on that frame, with velvet curtains to
protect the screen when not in use.
The class will take the students on a journey from Man's
earliest attempts to save images right up to today's most
modern techniques of film. This will be a college level class,
with much thinking, discussion and writing- not for the
faint-hearted, but for those who want to know all they can
about film producing, directing and showing will find most,
if not all, their dreams realized...and Kurt will have a blast!
