AMITY MIDDLE SCHOOL IN ORANGE VIDEO PRODUCTION PROGRAM

Amity Middle School in Orange has had a cadre of eighth grade students participating in a video production program run by former Amity student, Tristan Douglas, again this year.  The program was made possible through a grant from the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation (www.jamiehulleyartsfund.org).

Amity Middle School in Orange has had a cadre of eighth grade students participating in a video production program run by former Amity student, Tristan Douglas, again this year.  The program was made possible through a grant from the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation (www.jamiehulleyartsfund.org).

 

          Mr. Douglas met with the student cadre sixteen times over the course of the school year and introduced the students to the art of video production.  Students learned how to storyboard, set up and use a professional video camera and equipment, navigate the intricacies of filming a video, and much, much more.  The students who participated this year were:  Mason Beaudette, Jake DeMattia, Gillian Fuchs, Carly Gravitt, Emma Hatjopoulou, Zola Kneeland, Jade Krukar, Daniella Landino, Alexandra Louros, Kayley Mingione, Ky Moore-Horton, Melissa Musante, Mikey Pickett, Colleen Shaw, Dan Slugoski, AJ Soldra, and Nolan Young.

 

          Thanks to the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation grant, the video production students were exposed to a wide array of learning opportunities.  Amity Middle School in Orange does not currently have a course in video production like Amity Regional High School does; however, many students are interested in that aspect of art and drama.  This opportunity was embraced wholeheartedly by the students.  The program was a resounding success; and if offered again next year, there are several seventh graders who are very interested in participating in it.

 

The final video will be shown at the Amity Middle School in Orange Moving Up Ceremony in June and will be viewed by the nearly nine hundred people who will be attending the ceremony.
