These screen captures are from a work in progress about Perkins School For The Blind. I started this production with the intention of creating a simple five minute video looking into daily life at the school. Quickly, I learned that I wanted to spend more time at Perkins and chase after the larger story.
The clip might feel a bit long winded. My apologies but this is very much intentional. This project was an experiment in verité filmmaking for educational applications. My hopes were that students and practitioners alike could learn from Kate’s example. Seeing as she has 30+ years experience teaching special needs students, I felt there was immense value in being a fly on the wall of her classroom. This video clip, I hope, is the next best thing.
