My favorite part was working with my whole classroom, meeting Deacon & his workers and filming small videos. Also, I enjoyed getting to be creative as well as learning how to use a camera and editing videos. – Shai

Well I Say The Thoughts I had About Public Art Really Took A Turn For The Best, Because I Took My Thoughts And Put Them To Use Now I Have A Film That I Feel Really Proud Of… So With That Being Said, Without Public Art I Wouldn’t Have Done My Project. -Deshawn

Well, honestly public art is everything around you. Public art could be a person standing still all day in one place & not move. Or a mural on the wall. Also a statue. Public art is life. You just got to put your mind to it. – Shai

Yes, it was, and it was actually better than I thought it was going to be. It was a way to expand my horizon, with my fellow classmates, and show me more diversity. There are two Mexican families, and they both moved from different places, I think it was a good thing, so we can see what they go through. -Devonte

It went very well, and it went by fast. I didn’t think it was going to got that fast. It was kind of hard to talk about my best friend getting killed, since I really never talked to anybody about it. But, yet it was good to get it off my chest and talk about it. – Ricardo

Well, home means a lot to me. There’s comfort, love, and respect- Privacy, too.

Yes, this was my first experience with filmmaking. During this project, I learned how to edit and how to work the camera. I think I would like to do this again in the future. – Taju

I learned how to work with a diversity of attitudes- literally. I thought it was going to be worse than it actually was, but it turned out ok, although there were a couple of altercations that happened. Deacon was actually a great teacher, and I say this because this was my first experience with video production. I thought it was actually fun.

How do I relate to migration? I can relate to migration, I moved from Atlanta to Saint Paul, Minnesota. It was a new experience for me. A new city, new friends, and a new school, but all in all it was a good experience. The hardest adjustment from a new state is not seeing my family every day. -Dee

I can relate to migration because I have moved from Dominican Republic to New York and then to Minnesota. – Enmanuel Yona Cruz

I relate to the theme of migration because when I was in 3rd grade I was enrolled in two schools at one time. I was enrolled in two schools at one time, because I was living in Maplewood and Stacy, Minnesota. I went back and forth through both schools. I went to North Branch schools one week and Maplewood schools another week. The work in North Branch was always more challenging than in Maplewood, so I was always ahead of my classes in Maplewood. I would often do homework from my North Branch schools when I was done with my class work at Carver (school in Maplewood).

Working with people outside of Gordon parks was a new experience, and it gave us a different view of film making as well as how much time and money people put into building billboards. It also gave us a chance to see parts of the corporate world.
