“Défi Gourmand / Gourmet Challenge”, Spring 2021 (COVID)
Students conceived, wrote, produced, directed, shot, and edited their own short digital video project. The film was completed with input from all of the members of the team. The final project was a joint French/American video about cooking and food, with the goal of exposing students to the history of food and the cultural perceptions of cooking and buying food. Student teams created their own video project and engaged their creativity within an international context. The project allowed great flexibility: the video could be a cooking show, a documentary, a narrative film, and in any style they liked.
