        Films in Elizabeth

        In this video, budding young filmmakers from Dr. Antonio Pantoja School No. 27 in Elizabeth, NJ create short films that simplify complex science and social studies topics. Students use computers and iPads to shoot and edit the videos, which help them learn and serve as teaching tools for other students. Vice Principal and filmmaker Antonio Di Fonzo collaborates with science teacher Connie Sanchez and social studies teacher John McGuire on this initiative. Di Fonzo explains that the filmmaking encourages creativity, builds self-esteem, and helps prepare the students for 21st century careers.
