Instead of banning cell phones from his classroom, Bart Weiss, Associate Professor of Art and Art History, encourages his students to use them.
Weiss will talk about teaching his students how to write, produce and direct videos on their iPhones in a Focus on Faculty event Wednesday, Oct. 6 at noon at the Central Library Sixth Floor Parlor. The event is free and open to the general public.
A filmmaker and producer, Weiss has been making award-winning films in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex since 1981. He has taught film and video at Texas A&M’s Visualization Lab, Southern Methodist University, The University of Texas at Austin and West Virginia State College. He is the co-founder of the annual Dallas VideoFest and the Video Association of Dallas.
Weiss is currently a producer for “Frame of Mind,” a regular series about independent film and video on KERA.
