Overview

Moving Images is the first comprehensive media studies and motion picture production textbook of its kind. Offering a series of thematically-driven units that provide opportunities for collaborative learning, enhancement of creativity, and development of higher order thinking, this book is designed to get your students excited about making movies. Students will not only learn how to analyze and appreciate motion pictures, but they will also study the fundamental skills needed to create and produce their own movies. With an included interactive DVD students will also be able to view short films, as well as use a selection of film files to enhance their editing skills.

Carl Casinghino, Suffield High School

Having engaged in cinema studies as an undergraduate at Princeton University, Carl Casinghino moved on to film production in New York University's Graduate Film and Television program of the Tisch School of the Arts, where he directed several shorts and worked as undergraduate film equipment coordinator. He served in the camera departments of a number of films, including a feature on the history of Princeton University and the award-winning short The Architect. Carl later earned an MA in Education from Union Institute and University, in which he focused on collaborative learning and teaching for creativity and developed further his approach to media literacy. Carl currently teaches media studies and digital production at Suffield High School in Connecticut. Among recent professional activities, Carl served as a presenter at the 2011 NAMLE conference in Philadelphia and was the opening speaker at the 2010 Connecticut Career and Technical Education conference. Carl has been selected as a finalist for Connecticut Teacher of the Year and was honored with a Special Commendation by the CT Association of Boards of Education for the 2012 school year.
