My Students

I have the privilege of teaching and overseeing our school's Digital Journalism class. We began this program as a half-year semester class 3 years ago, and what my students have been able to accomplish week in and week out has been nothing short of incredible.

Every week, the class releases a News broadcast to the entire school that is written, directed, produced and stars the students.

They don't stop with the weekly show; however, as they use their growing media skills to also produce short films, commercials for school events, and special programming which displays to other students around the school.

My class has been able to create wonderful pieces of multimedia with limited resources at times. I can only imagine what they'll be able to create with an influx of new equipment.

My Project

My students and myself have been unbelievably blessed to have been given the recording and digital equiptment we have. The last piece to our setup is professional lighting. Adding this lighting system will continue to bring pride to my students as they film not just themselves but others around the school and community.

Utilizing a camcorder, mic and potentially professional lighting will continue to allow my students to be proud of their work.

Boosting our digital setup and studio gives my students and classroom a much needed boost!

The more my students film and edit, the more they point out how important lighting is. By adding this piece of equipment they will be able to further expand their film making skills and abilities.
