Film & TV

Help me give my students eight digital SLR cameras for a chance to use equipment they would not get to use everyday.

My Students

The students in our high school Film & TV program are students who enjoy using equipment that them might not ever have. These students are extremely ambitious and excited to learn new things. They love to film, edit film, create movies, broadcast announcements, and design logos and videos for clubs and sports on campus. The students put in time and effort everyday in the classroom. They are excited to implement new types of broadcasting equipment into their day. These students are very appreciative.

My Project

We are looking to update the film and tv equipment that we have in the classroom. I have just taken over the program and have done some clean up and found a lot of equipment is obsolete. Some of our equipment has aged over time. My students currently only have two broadcasting cameras, four Nikon DSLR, two Canons, and ten low end film cameras.

We are requesting eight digital SLR cameras for a chance to use equipment they would not get to use everyday.

The students will use these 8 DSLRs to create videos, movies, clips, and implement their work into a film festival that our district does. They will use these cameras to create high quality films. The students need more quality cameras to be effective. The broadcasting room needs updated cameras to produce quality daily news for 1800 students on the campus. They also need quality DSLR to take out and interview teachers and students around the campus
