My Students

My students are creative and tech-savvy. We are producing a weekly video program that airs to the entire school as well as the community of Dartmouth, MA.

Our program highlights other programs within the school.

My students are eager to help provide positive messages to the student body.

My students film and interview various classes and programs that are positive for young people. My students are very motivated to produce quality programming. This is real world experience which will make them career ready.

My Project

This camera crane will make our shows look more professional with smooth fluid quality movements.

The students will use the camera crane in our professional TV studio environment.

Students will operate it during our live broadcasts.

Furthermore, we will use the camera crane during classes for enhancing our other projects, like music videos, documentary stories, commercials, and more.

Students will learn "real world" production techniques with professional equipment like this. My students are problem solvers and innovators. They take tools like this and create amazing quality work.

All of our work can be viewed on YouTube. Simply search DHSTVmedia on YouTube to find our channel.
