What could we all learn if we had the chance to view the
world through the eyes of others?
What if we thought of filmmaking as less of a vocation and more of an
opportunity to grow from exposure to each other's ideas?
What if students weren't taught how to make films, but were encouraged to
discover for themselves what making films is all about?
These are all questions which drive the pedagogical approach of Zoom-In Zoom-Out.
"Filmmaking is an act of collaborative discovery in which the imaginations of others is required to reach unforeseen meaning. The treasure of cinema is that it allows us to engage in a sustained creative activity with a group of other people whose reservoirs of experience have the potential to shift our standing."
"Not at all unlike the way a camera lens works, the wider open one's mind is, the more light can enter."
