ENN Needs Equipment!

My students need film equipment for their audio video production class.

My Students

Our Arts, Audio/Visual Technology, and Communications program is rapidly growing. With this increase of students into the program, they are all not able to learn hands-on with the lack of resources available in the classroom.

As a teacher in a 70% low-income school district, my students lack the basic technical equipment needed to produce the school news.

These students are beyond creative and motivated in continuing to make the Eagle News Network a success. The program was even featured on NewsWest 9 in November 2016.

My Project

This class currently has limited resources and uses many of my personal photography and video equipment for filming. These students deserve the additional equipment to film everything for their school production, Eagle News Network (ENN). With limited resources, they aren't able to accomplish much interviewing and filming in the allotted time frame.

Students will use the film equipment to produce our daily newscast and segments for our Audio Visual Production class.

The students get excited when they film the school news production and will be glad to know they have the resources they need in order to accomplish their daily tasks.

The materials that I am requesting are necessities for a quality production for ENN. We have a great support system in Pecos and the surrounding communities, so we really want to make our content the best possible.

The Neewer Bi-color LED 480 Video Light and Stand Kit and the Neewer Camera Photo Video Lighting Kit (ring light) will be used for standard newscast lighting so everyone can always see our students excited and friendly faces in each video. The Bi-color can be used for multiple individuals in a shot, while the ring light will benefit one individual being filmed. The numerous AmazonBasics tripods will be extremely beneficial as our tripods hold up all of our cameras, and some of our current tripods have broken due to the overweight of our cameras. The Neewer Mini Ball Head with Lock and Hot Shoe Adapter Camera Cradle will be used to hook any camera up to the ring light mentioned above. The AUX cables will be used to connect our current microphones to the cameras for voice enhancement.

In the future, we hope to purchase additional cameras, tripods, microphones, backdrops, and SD cards.
