Our school currently has a great video production program up and running. In fact, it's about to celebrate its 14th year!
We've spent over a decade slowly building up our pool of materials, including video cameras, editing stations, and microphones. We still have one big need, though: lighting.
My three levels of students would love to be able to use a professional location-style 3-light kit meant for video production.
The equipment would allow students to truly experience the magic of the motion picture, allowing students to engage themselves in creating a professional video set. While I can teach them how to use available lighting to the best of their ability, I realize seeing professional lights shining down on the scenes they direct would truly allow them to experience the professional situations we try to recreate.
Our school is currently slated to be a pilot school for an International Baccaluarete "Film" diploma programme class. I really hope to be able for these students to learn professional lighting situations and utilize them in the short films they must make in the class. My goal is to eventually have our high school known as "the best" filmmaking program in our state!
