Benefits For Your Students & School

Creates A Supportive School Culture

These projects are an opportunity for students with different talents and abilities to succeed at the same time. Instead of focusing on what we're against, we focus on understanding and celebrating diversity and inclusion!

Roots of Empathy

Creativity requires students to take risks, and we all need a safe space to do that. It’s a practical training ground to apply the roots of empathy as students gain an appreciation for the value of their talents and of those around them.

Common Ground of a Shared Experience

These projects create a shared experience for all the students in the school. The themes in the video, song and slam poems can be used throughout the year to reinforce school values.

Incorporating New Technology

The multi media projects incorporate new technology into the classroom as students learn to record audio, video and stop animation along with the basics of editing and arranging. Special emphasis is put on using software and hardware that the students will have access to, like Garageband and iMovie.

Inclusive & Highly Adaptable

These projects are inclusive and adaptable to students of all ages from K-G12 in schools that range from 1-400 students. 

Here's What A Typical One Week Production Schedule Looks Like

Day #1 - Brainstorming & Ice Breakers

Day #1 Rik gets students to describe their school, their class and share personal stories. This information becomes the basis for the lyrics. Interspersed with brainstorming, Rik teaches students songs from other schools and cultures, providing a context for what they are creating

Day #2 - Rehearsal & Storyboarding

Day #2 students start to rehearse an initial rough version of their song, editing and refining music and lyrics as well as determining what additional multi media storytelling elements their class will create for the video

Day#3 - Rehearsal & Content Creation

This session combines rehearsing the song with multi media content creation. This involves filming the creation of visual art pieces, acting or stop animation.

Day#4 - More Rehearsal & Additional Content Creation

Students continue to rehearse their song and film the multi media elements. All sessions are generally 45 minutes long, and we need every minute to film the students creating together

Day#5 - Final Rehearsals, Performing, Recording & Filming

Class sessions on Friday morning are usually cut a bit shorter, making room for our general assembly in the afternoon. This is where the entire school gathers and we record the audio and film the live performance
