Bailey Talks About the Technical Side of Filmmaking

Bailey talks about editing and polishing films for consumption.
Everyone needs to feel significant as an individual, yet connected to something larger. As students learn about and take pride in their local history, they realize their importance as members of a community and its connection to our nation. The American History Film Project works to make that connection daily in the lives of students. The American History Film Project (AHFP) is a multi-disciplinary educational project that teaches students to write, plan, act, film and edit a short film about the history of their local community, then share it with other students across the US. By taking part in this project, students learn that many important and memorable events happened in their community, making them feel important and a part of the whole.
