St. Edwards University Documentary Project

The films in this collection are a result of a partnership between St. Edward’s University and the Texas Archive of the Moving Image to produce documentary student films. Students in Scott Christopherson’s Documentary Production class were  assigned to create a 3-5 minute film using archival footage from the Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) website with an emphasis on creating story arcs. Using four films from TAMI, the students could choose to narrate the clips using a personal story or memory from childhood; explore what it means to be a Texan or living in Texas (focusing on one or two aspects of Texas Culture); interpret the footage using a series of audio interviews that somehow correlate to the images; explore what is means to be Latino or Chicano in Texas; or create sound effects, narration, and a story for the images.
