FROOOM! – INTERDISCIPLINARY FILM SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH (since 2011)

Innovative media, film and computer literacy education for children and youth focusing on intercultural exchange and fostering children’s understanding of human rights and understanding of “others”.

Our education method insist on interactive learning, empowering children and youth to understand media content from any possible point of view and guiding them trough all these by playfulness and fun.

We forensically trace evidences on all historical attempt to “create” films and moving pictures in last 3000 years as well we analyze new and old media content using, in maieutic way, hermeneutic methodology while we shift all the time different points of views.

Frooom! is an innovative media, film and information literacy program for children and young people from 8 to 16 years, which introduces them to what they cannot see and understand by watching movies, TV series, music videos, computer games and web-media programs. Through an intensive process of game-like education and exploring, children learn about the nature of the film while experimenting with all that a film as we know it today was coming from: from Chinese Zoetropes, French Praxinoscopes, through Mannerist optical experiments, experimental animation of still photography and Camera Obscura, to computer software, advanced video, drones and 3D mapping and digital technology.

The mission of the project is also to stimulate critical approach of children and youth towards media contents and foster intercultural exchange of cultural, media and local knowledge primarily in the region of Mediterranean area, Balkan region and EU, between artist, authors, cultural operators and policy makers as well between larger or targeted audience.

Bojana smišlja filmove dok trči, pliva, dok roni. Putuje pješice, jer tako sve najbolje vidi i upozna. Onda ode u špilju i duboku jamu, pa nakon što dovoljno dugo visi naopačke na konopu u mraku, spremna je za pisanje filma svjetlom i kamerom. Izvući će svačije ideje iz mraka glave i učiniti ih vječnima.

Veno Mušinović

Veno je jedan od 35 najboljih Frooom voditelja u ovom djelu svijeta. Voli puno učiti, naročito druge. Uvijek se namjeri na manje od sebe jer voli raditi s ljudima koji svakodnevno rastu. I voli raditi super filmove, sa super maštovitim scenarijima i redateljskim trikovima. Unatoč velikoj dioptriji, trener je oštrovidnosti prilikom gledanja, slobodoumnosti prilikom osmišljavanja i dalekovidnosti prilikom stvaranja filmova.
