Susan G. Reid, Professor of Practice in Acting/Directing at the School of Music’s Film, Media & Theatre directed the new film, “artscape 2021.” The collaborative theatrical project was devised and created by Georgia State students using Atlanta street art as a stage for a mix of spoken word and theatrical scenes, focusing on subjects that are front and center today: the pandemic, societal inequalities and the BLM movement. Reid gives insight into the film’s fruition and the messages “artscape 2021” hopes to convey.
The School of Film, Media &Theatre is dedicated to educating the next generation of critically aware media makers, scholars, theatre practitioners and citizens. Even during the pandemic, the school has found ways to create COVID19 compliant production opportunities that promote safety while holding space for creativity.
