Seattle Country Day School hosted the 2nd annual Middle School Media Festival on May 18th.
Organized by Ethan Delavan, this digital arts celebration included the works of students ages 10-14 from around the Northwest – representing Westside School, Woodinville Montessori, Open Window School, Catlin-Gabel, Jewish Day School, Puget Sound Community School, Whitman Middle School, Annie Wright School, McClure Middle School, French-American International School and Seattle Country Day.
Young makers submitted digital film, posters, original music, websites and interactive game media. Two of my favorite pieces are embedded below:
RUNNER is a spoken-word video collage from the Catlin-Gabel school. Created by Daniel Linnell and Max Fogelstrom, with words by Mo Alan.
Cats & Cats Return is a blend of editing and production techniques set to a catchy tune. Created by Spencer Shaw of Puget Sound Community School.
