     "Visual Grammar" is the topic of a conversation I had with the AFI’s Frank Gutler in mid-March. You can download that podcast from this link.

     The Mabry School in Georgia has some great examples of student work.

     How can one person make a difference? That’s just what the National School Board Association asked student film makers. You can see the winning answers at their T+L conference site.
