Sampa Summer Seminar Film Production Crew

28 students at Avenues São Paulo created 14 documentary short films about the 14 course offerings of Sampa Summer Seminar, a full week of interdisciplinary, project-based learning experiences centered on the theme, “The Fabric of São Paulo". Students had a day to learn and practice basic shooting and editing techniques and interviewing strategies before being immersed in one course with a partner. Together they documented the learning happening in the course and created short films. Along the way, they received instruction and feedback from the talented professionals on the Avenues Creative Team. The short films were premiered at the Sampa Summer Seminar film festival on the showcase day and were shared Avenues community members online.

Student film directed by Pedro Cardoso and Sayuri Ito
