On Friday, February 13, 2015 students in the 21st Century Broadcast Communications class at Quitman High School were given the opportunity to experience working behind the scenes with the InView film crew.
The students shadowed the film crew all day while they documented early literacy programs in Quitman School District. The crew filmed in PreK classrooms at Quitman Lower Elementary, the Ben Carson Reading Room at Quitman Upper Elementary, and classrooms at the Headstart program. Parents, teachers and administrators from the district were interviewed about pre-K educational programs available to kids in QSD.
Videographer Gator gave broadcast students practice behind the scenes setting up shots, lighting, and shooting outdoor and indoor scenes. Gator even made time to share a few colorful stories about the film industry.
The Broadcast Communication Class is a 21st Century Grant-funded after school program that is new to Quitman High School this year. In this program students gain knowledge and experience in digital media through filming, editing, using a green screen, coordinating live broadcasts and streaming media.
