Media Mash-up Challenge
The Media Mash-up Challenge is an opportunity for students to “talk back to” the media. Students select samples of persuasive messages (commercials, print ads, politics, news clips, science information, etc. ) and use technology to dissect, question, comment, or satirize.
Mash-up videos and posters should be submitted to Montclair Film by April 16th and will be incorporated into a public art installation on display at the Montclair Film Festival (April 26 – May 6.)
The winning videos will be screened before select films at the film festival, and the mash-ups will be celebrated at the Emerging Filmmaker Awards Ceremony and Reception, Montclair Kimberley Academy, Upper School.
The grand prize winning team will also win a FREE Montclair Film Swag & Free lunch at Ruthie’s Bar-B-Q and Pizza!
