Ideas for an Anti-school web series or documentary

Hello again SS. I have been extremely frustrated lately with school, people, and life in general. So I thought of a way to relieve some of that stress. By making some sort of video(s) to be released on YouTube about school. Here are my current ideas.

Anti-school documentary/web series.

-Shots of mass amounts of students.
-Commentary outlining the history of school, where it came from, why it was created, who created it. Etc.
-Interviews/dialogue with students gathering a diversity of opinions.
-Possible changes to be made to present system.
-For the time being alternatives to compulsory schooling.
-Possible connections between school and mental illness, teen deaths, insomnia, etc.
------------------------------------------

TIME GOALS:
-Between 10 to 30 minutes long if it is a documentary. 5 to 15 minutes per episode if it is a web series.
------------------------------------------

PURPOSE:
-To show those who take their time to watch it how dysfunctional our present schooling system is.
------------------------------------------


These are in no way my final ideas and I would appreciate some feedback or criticism of these ideas. -THE GREAT CEREAL_KILLER

Where's xcriteria when you need him?

We've been having a lot of discussion on the IRC, various G+ threads, various Google Hangouts, etc, on a "renaissance" of sorts on School Survival. AKA, basically when SS gets "on the map" of sorts.

Do you have anyone that can help you in this documentary?

Yeah I've got a few friends who can help me and they're all relatively skilled in filming.

It sounds like we've got a formatting idea! We've got to show xcrit this! Excellent work.

I'd like to help however I can; perhaps I could be a narrator.

Yeah, this is very much along the lines of what a number of us have been talking about. Let's talk. Smile

I think the best approach is to start by getting footage, put it out as a web series (your own and/or contribute to ours) and it's always possible to edit the key parts into a traditional film later on.

But overall, let's just talk, maybe in the chat.

Do you have parents, teachers, and so on you can interview?

This is great.

Is it possible to invite them on SS?
