Blueshift creates educational content that leverages the power of documentary media to make impact and change
"Blueshift revolutionized the educational materials that accompany our documentary films. In 2018 we worked with Blueshift to create educational lesson plans, curriculum and a comprehensive study guide for our HBO documentary King in the Wilderness. It is already being adopted into curriculum in Atlanta schools."
- George Kunhardt, Kunhardt Film Foundation
"After three years of laboring in the field, Blueshift listened closely to our experiences in production, our goals for education, the work and resources we, as filmmakers, had already undertaken, and then added their own curiosity and deep well of experience to the mix."
-Marilyn Ness, Director/Producer, Charm City
"We loved having in-depth conversations with Blueshift about our vision as filmmakers at the beginning of the process, and they did a fantastic job of then translating and crystalizing that vision into the educational materials."
-Anna Moot-Levin and Laura Green, Directors, The Providers
"Blueshift wrote the curriculum around Next Gen Science Standards (NGSS) so teachers can use these materials to meet educational requirements, which we’ve found has made tremendous impact. ... Their curriculum has been so successful that now we’re translating it into several languages, so teachers can use INVENTING TOMORROW in classrooms around the world."
-Laura Nix, Director, Inventing Tomorrow
"The materials Blueshift collaborated with me to create are meaningful because they are deeply researched and help audiences get beneath the surface to use the film for meaningful discussions and impact."
- Elaine Sheldon, Peabody Award-winning Director, Heroin(e) and Recovery Boys
"Blueshift masterfully weaves together credible and foundational background information with fresh interactive ways to spark dialogue and engage with content themes."
- Daniel Moretti, formerly at ITVS, Currently Director of Distribution and Educational Programming at Frameline
"As documentary film professors by day...it was really important for us to use the film to facilitate dialogue and empathy around an important (and contentious) issue and Blueshift’s efforts could not have been more crucial in helping us achieve that."
- Brad Barber, Director, Peace Officer
“Blueshift dug deeply into the themes of our film, and opened my eyes to the potential scope of an educational curriculum. What began as an English lesson plan is now so much more – an immersive multimedia curriculum, which will allow the film a long and successful life in the educational space.”
– Jason Zeldes, Director, Romeo Is Bleeding
