With the help of TV/Video’s equipment, Lauren Gerlemann and Diana Ribera both sent in videos to two competitions to compete for prizes. Lauren’s video was submitted in hopes of winning a $500 Best Buy gift card, and Diana’s video is up for a $5,000 cash prize.
The video Lauren sent in was about why the students of NHHS appreciate Mr. Stutzman.
Lauren said, “I was nervous because I was in TV/Video last year, and I was such a perfectionist at it that it took me till Christmas to finish the swimming intramurals video. So, when I heard I had to make a video and have it done in a short amount of time, I kind of panicked.”
Lauren said that, to get ideas flowing, she watched videos from previous years to see what other students did and how they fulfilled the assignment.
Mrs. Borcherding said that with the $500 gift card, the class will purchase a new camera lens. She said that they can buy a lot of items with this gift card.
The video Diana Ribera sent in was about how we as a school love NHHS.
Diana said, “I was nervous because I had to make a less-than-one-minute video about why we love our school and what we were going to do with the money. It was so nerve-wracking!”
She also said that it was not hard to come up with ideas. Once people started telling her why they loved this school it became easier.
Mrs. Borcherding said that with the $5,000 cash prize, the class would refurbish the current studio filming room with hanging lights, sound absorbing panels, and a rolling tripod.
Diana was asked how she thinks the video will do, and she commented with, “I hope that it does well. I think it has to go through three rounds in order to win. I mean, even if we don't win, I think that the video was perfect to me.”
When Lauren was asked how she thinks her video will do, she responded with, “I think it will do okay. I didn't have a lot of time to work on the project before it was due, so I think for what I captured, it will do okay in the competition.”
As said in Diana’s video, with this money, the TV/Video class will be able to show the community all the great things they can do. Good luck to Diana and Lauren!
