Let's Go Pro! Get that Interesting Angle.

My students need the Go Pro camera to take their film projects to the next level. This new technology allows the students to tell their story from all angles.

My Students

I have students taking a Documentary film class and over 50 students working in a brand new Broadcast Journalism course.Since we have no yearly budget we struggle to keep the technology required for these classes up to date. This Camera will open new doors for my students.

My students come from a vast socio-economic range.

Our school is an Urban setting surrounding by many affluent towns. There are many times when I hear my students compare our school with some of our wealthier neighbors in a negative way. Giving them this up to date technology will show them that they too are deserving of the very best. As a school with extreme diversity both racially and economically having the opportunities provided by Donors Choose will show my students that they are worth just as much as the students in the surrounding towns.

My Project

This Go Pro camera is the latest technology in video that will allow my students to get those interesting shots to put their work up to the next level creatively. We often discuss how important in documentary film and broadcasting it is essential to tell the compelling stories. This camera is used in many television shows to create the interest and get up close and personal. I have witnessed firsthand on my last Donors Choose project the sheer amazement in my students eyes when they realize that a complete stranger cared enough in them to help fund the project.

Since I have no budget for either class I am forced to find a variety of ways to acquire equipment that keeps us relevant.

I think it is vital that kids in an urban setting such as the one I teach in truly believe that they are worthy of the best equipment available. The Donors Choose program makes that a reality.
