LegacyQuest: Through the Eyes of the Students

Sun BigThe 2014 LegacyQuest International Children’s Film and Video Festival was a resounding success, but it wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the teachers and students who participated. For students, the projects presented some real challenges.  They had to tackle complex subjects, reduce them to their essentials, turn the material into cogent scripts and then tell a story through visuals.  The result?  A collection of thoughtful and engaging films that proudly represent LegacyQuest and what it hoped to achieve. We at AntiquityNOW wanted to know how the process of creating a LegacyQuest entry affected the students who participated. The slideshow below features quotes from students talking about their experiences. Click here to read the students’ letters in their entirety.
