Lighting Up Students Future

My students need adjustable LED lighting kits to know how to light with if they are going to be competitive upon graduation.

My Students

The students in the Arts AV Program at HHS have intentionally decided to leave their "school of record" to come to our career and technical institute to study the art of Media Communications. These students leave many of their junior high friends behind and add hours to their daily bus rides so they can pursue a meaningful career in Photography, Graphic Design, Video Production, Broadcast Journalism, etc. etc.

Whether it is the sons and daughters of college professors or the children of dog mushers who live in a dry cabin near the Alaska range, we melt them all together around the common mission of creating high-level media productions.

My Project

Lighting is one of the major differences between professional paid video production and simply pointing your cell phone camera at a subject. My students want to turn their passion for creating video into a paid position so it is critical that they learn about effective lighting.

Adjustable LED light kits will help us replace our outdated, hard to setup, non-industry standard lighting kit.

This particular kit is amazingly flexible and will find use in all my classes from photography to live event production. In particular, we will use this kit for improved lighting of our daily newscast, improved lighting of our public service announcement videos, and improved lighting during out live production pre-game and half-time shows.
