Featured Presenter: Tom Flint

We discuss the question: “To what extent do we need to adopt the language, process, and technique of filmmaking into K-12 film education?” Flint's academic and pedagogical interests lie primarily in a process-oriented methodology of filmmaking which is embedded in Japanese philosophical traditions relating to continuous exploration and self-cultivation. He discusses industry-centric pedagogical traits that tend to emphasize technique and structure, and adhere to commonly held beliefs like “you need to know the rules before you can break them” and “filmmakers need to have a clear vision.”

About the Presenter: Tom Flint completed his undergraduate degree in Film and Media Arts from Temple University in 2004. For 13 years, he lived in Tokyo as a freelance filmmaker and documentary filmmaking instructor.
