Cinematic Arts Students Sharing Talents with Middle School Students

Scott Beck and Bryan Woods
On April 19, Bettendorf Middle School students are coming to campus to work with University of Iowa cinema students and Skype with A Quiet Place writers. Scott Beck and Bryan Woods (pictured left), graduates of the University of Iowa as well as Bettendorf High School. The middle school students will have the chance to ask Beck and Woods questions while they sit in on a  UI cinema class. The Bettendorf students have been working with UI’s Department of Cinematic Arts on a movie trailer project, with the support of Arts Share. UI cinema students traveled to Bettendorf to work with the students on their movie trailers and will critique and judge the students' final projects when they host the students on campus. In addition to joining a cinema class and Skyping with Beck and Woods, the students will tour the department and have lunch with UI students.
