    To see a full list of the DVD's I own, click on the link in my signature.
    Which of these do you think would be a good one to show in a video production class at high school?
    The guidelines my teacher gave me were to make sure it had some pretty good camera and editing techniques and would be appropriate.
    The class is 90 minutes long and consists of sophmores, juniors, and seniors.
    I'll look forward to any suggestions any of you have. [​IMG]

    Well, only being a 90 minute class it's really hard to recommend. If you can watch a flick for a few days watch.
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Although being in high school myself most idiots won't understand the greatness of that film. You could always give em the finger.

    I would go with Citizen Kane, 2001: A Space Odyssey, or Citizen Kane.

    Actually, do you have to pick one, or scenes from several? If the latter, then I'd also consider

    Ben-Hur (chariot race)

    2001 (earth to moon journey)

    and others.

    I'd go with Citizen Kane or 2001 personally. I'd also appreciate it if, after all is done, you posted a list of films your fellow students picked.

    Under 90m w/ good camera work and editing? I'd show Nosferatu or Modern Times. Even better I'd run out and get a copy of Passion of Joan of Arc and show that. [​IMG]

    It would probably bomb with most high school students, but I think it would be very cool to show Being There. Ashby's one of my favorite directors, and the cutting of that film just amazes me.
    90 minutes is quite a challenge. Would you consider showing clips from several films instead? If so, you need to show the sequence when Chance leaves the home, accompanied by that jazz fusion cover of Thus Spake Zarathustra.
