Brooklyn Public is a look into a New York public school and the surrounding neighborhood, through the eyes of it's students. We will follow four students as they begin a community project in their freshman English class, led by their compelling teacher, Mr. Van Dyke. Celebrating people and places around their community that in the past have commonly drawn negative attention, the students will uncover a new found significance in their neighborhood and education. Growing up first-generation American in East New York, the kids will face daily hardships in and out of the classroom. This film will help people to better understand public education in New York City, and hopefully help future educators in their own classrooms.
What the donations will go towards:
While the project is finished with filming, there are essential components that are necessary to finish this film and show it to the public. We are currently working towards a fine cut of the film. However, there are lots of costs in post-production. These costs include: music, graphics, sound edit and mix, color-correction and editing expenses. If we are able to go over our goal amount, any extra money will be used for festival costs and materials.
