Staff, students at Brooklyn College Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema Studies prep for new teaching model
With the pandemic putting film projects on hold, the staff and students at Brooklyn College Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema Studies have to adapt to a new teaching model.
After a completely remote spring semester, only a select few courses allow in-person for the fall. Faculty say they realized that filmmaking is really about collaboration.
Out of 200 students that go to the school, only a fraction are allowed in the building at a time and have to go through a rigorous screening process beforehand.
The school sanitizes equipment after each use. It only allows a five-person crew to produce films, which is under the city madate of 50 people.
