Mrs. Halquist’s 3D Animation and my Advanced AV courses were invited to the 2011 Lake Arrowhead Film Festival. As we entered the building, Mr. Larry Parker met us at the door and had a “campfire” discussion about the festival and Film Schools. He invited us to visit his studio in Hollywood. We were blown away. So, Mrs. Halquist and Mrs. Phillips expedited a way for our classes to go on a field trip.

We were welcomed at Mole-Richardson Studios with warmth and energy. We learned about lighting, production, history of film, and so much more. Below are short videos in Vimeo we produced from an on-the-fly hands-on exercise: The “Making Of” and “One Halloween Night.” We still have 5 hours of footage left for editing lighting lessons. Be sure to click on the best quality when viewing them. The original web page from our school is here.

Advanced AV

Back in June of this year, my classroom was visited by a production team that was creating informational videos for the Alliance for Education, which serves schools and business in San Bernardino County. Click on their link for more specific information. I finally found the videos in which my class was featured. They are long and informative. Do check them out. We are in three of them: Project Based Learning, School Based Enterprise, and Work Experience. Leave some feedback, please.
