In September of last year, I found myself sitting in Mr. Christensen’s studio production class. For those of you who do not know what studio production is, it is where students come face to face with video cameras in our very own MHS studio. In the class, students create short productions on camera and get to know the camera equipment.
As the class progressed, I found myself wanting to get out and do something more with the skills I had learned. So, I asked about film club. A year later, I have taken film club and have made it my own. With Mr. C’s help, four other film club members and I have started MHSnews.
As students of MHS, we go around and capture the school as it truly is. They say high school is the time of our lives, its up to us to portray that. So far we have five segments on YouTube. The segments feature other MHS students and activities/events going on at the High School.
Our last segment was a Student Story that featured Liza Tosi, a sophomore at MHS. In the segment, Tosi was interviewed and filmed while playing guitar. She has written numerous original songs about her own life and the people in it. The segment featured two of her original songs, Jessie’s Song and Loudest Silence.
Also, our production of Ithacappella was seen on MHTV’s Headliner last week. The segment featured the Ithacappella music group that performed at MHS on January 5th. MHSnews captured some great interviews from group members and people in the audience.
So far, our YouTube channel has three subscribers and over 900 views. We need people to spread the word. Film Club runs every Tuesday at 3pm in Mr. Christensen’s room. If you are interested in joining, come on down!
