On Point Productions is a collaboration between Ithaca College journalism students Bianca Nicolosi and Nicole Ogrysko as part of a senior-level documentary journalism class. The documentary, “Bilingual Bicycle” will follow elementary, high school and college students who are learning a second language. On Point Productions plans to portray students from a variety of backgrounds and demonstrate the challenges that come with learning a second language. Ultimately, the documentary will illustrate the importance of becoming bilingual. To accurately portray the process of learning a second language, On Point Productions plans to film featured students learning and interacting at school speak with teachers who teach English as a Second Language (ESL) or a second language in school. The final documentary will be shown at a class screening in May and will also be available online at the end of production. Please direct further questions about the documentary to Bianca and Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
