Field Trip to Florentine Films

Digital Video II

The Digital Video II class explores Florentine Films, the production studio and editing facilities of local filmmaker Ken Burns. It was an opportunity for ConVal Regional High School students to spend time with both producers and editors of Florentine Films. This ground breaking production company is responsible for such films as The Civil War , Baseball, and Jazz. This was a rare insight into the workings of a busy production house, responsible for some of the greatest films on PBS.
