Speaking of documentaries, CATV held a party for homeschoolers to screen their documentaries, and it was a lot of fun. It was a small group and there were only two films because a couple of groups ended up dropping out, but those groups still attended the premiere, and it was fun. The kids really get along well and they're a great group, so it was nice to see them. Plus, we don't see them much because they're a little far away.
It was also a chance to see the final products of their hard work, and they did such a nice job. There were two films, and you could see that a lot of time and work went into them researching their topics, getting footage, and going out onto the streets to get interview footage. I know about this firsthand. We watched the films, they had some pizza and snacks, and the parents pitched in and got a cake for SB and BF. They do such a nice job of working with the kids and providing them with opportunities.
You can see the Ken Burns influence in the final product. Kind of cool, and I have to say, I hope they continue along this vein.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to wharton center for the pic.
