Film teachers across the Globe
Thanks for your interest in teaching film study and these resources. As of January 2014, I retired from 32 years as a classroom teacher to become the Executive Director for Think 360 Arts, a non-profit in Colorado that places artists in the classroom.
Since this switch, it became imperative that this site and resources listed here supported themselves. As a result I have added a small charge to each download. All downloads are saved in your purchase history, so if you lose a lecture you can always retrieve it again for free. I will continue to add films to the site for use in your classrooms.
Thanks for supporting Media Arts in our schools.
