Edison School's film studio has produced another short film. You may have heard of Brandon Stanton's blog, "Humans of New York", where he photographs, interviews and profiles regular people in New York. This led to his book Humans of New York, which also led to a children's book, Little Humans. Jean and I were so inspired by Little Humans, that we asked our "Little Humans of Edison" what THEY could do. The film is the compilation of SOME of the things our littlest humans of Edison can do. Enjoy!
