NYC Gifted and Talented Program and Testing


The Kindergarten Shuffle – A Family’s Journey via the OLSAT Testing and G&T Program

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Douglass Morse who has written and directed an incredible docu-drama film of his experience with the NYC gifted and talented program with his young son Zeke. The film is not a documentary, though many of the school tours, neighborhood events and information sessions are real. Not a reenactment, for the narrative is freely modified to suit the dramatic needs of the narrative. The actors who portray Douglass and his wife helped shape the back-story and brought to film the reality of the anxiety, fear, frustration, happiness and joy of having a gifted and talented child and going through the G&T process so many NYC parents pilgrimage annually. From OLSAT testing to the first day of school at the G&T program at NEST – this film covers everything in between in a thoughtful and insightful manner while still bringing to life the raw emotion involved with this entire process parents endure in NYC. The film will be launched in a few months and here’s sneak preview!

You can contact Douglass at moviemaker@gmail.com if you have questions about the film or visit his web site.
