Große Gefühle: Bilder, Musik und Sprache im Film
Children and youth won’t stop watching TV because of critical media education. This age group hates nothing more than following orders when it comes to choosing a TV channel or a programme. Because of that, this text introduces three projects which take an action-oriented and not an analytical approach to the topic of “picture, language and music on screen”. Pupils get the chance to develop their own standards and simultaneously learn to be more aware of other standards. By producing their own soap-opera, by re-dubbing a sequence of a movie or by turning music into video they get the chance to experiment freely with both picture and sound.
