Inocente, Rooftop Films and the Fledgling Fund

Inocente from Fine Films on Vimeo.

As part of New Designs' partnership with Rooftop Films, and in partnership with the Fledgling Fund, New Design will be premiering the Oscar winning short documentary film Inocente to its students.  The film is about a young teenage homeless artist from San Diego.  The story is about the transformative power of art, the courage of a young person and the face of teenage homelessness in America.  The Fledgling Fund has sponsored a Rooftop Films teaching artist to work with students in New Design's Mediastorm class in creating their media project logos.  Students in the course has chosen their own media projects for the year from documentary films to fashion blogs to DJ collectives.  Check out Arieyl's first attempt at a video fashion blog and Young Legendz Productions first draft of a trailer for their documentary film Rooftop Legends.

Rooftop Films will be presenting films on our rooftop space beginning May 10th with over 15 evening movies through July 19th.  You can see the summer schedule here.  We are excited a new partnership for the film series this year as Hester Street Fair will be providing food and drink vendors for all the films.  Both organizations donate funds and resources to sustain New Design's design programs.

Here is the logo designed as part of the project for the Mediastorm class:
