School-wide Music Video

Project Published 2/18/14 Last updated on 5/16/18

I sponsor an after-school club for my video students called Franklin Filmmakers. The goal of the club is to encourage students to apply the skills they learn in video class to independent projects. Last year they organized a school-wide music video that featured an anthem written and recorded by one of my students. This project was shot over several days and required both parent-signed release forms and consent from the administration. The producers needed to coordinate with various clubs and school groups. Students used Premiere Pro and After Effects in post production. The video went on to win a regional award and was even featured in the local newspaper and on a local morning news program. It was a great unifying experience for the school's students.
