Video Stills From Switch Video Project

The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art would like to congratulate all of the students who recently participated in its Inside Out Classroom: Switch Video Project. During this international educational program two groups of students–one from the National Art Honor Society at West Forsyth High School in Clemmons, NC; and one from Lincoln High School in Seoul, South Korea–explored and documented their communities through video and other new media tools. The students maintained an ongoing dialog using Skype™, a web-based videoconferencing software, to discuss the differences and similarities of their cultures with their counterparts. The students then “switched” or traded video footage with their counterparts who edited and finalized each other’s video. To see the students’ final videos click on this link

This program was instructed by Maya Gilliam, CEO of III Eye Digital, a local multimedia firm, with the support of West Forsyth High School, WFHS art educator Betti Pettinati Longinotti, the WFHS National Art Honor Society, and the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public School System. In-kind support was provided by the Flip Video Spotlight Program
