Audio/Video Class Members Submit Films to UIL [Part 2]

Members of the advanced audio/visual class recently finished two documentaries and have submitted them to the UIL Young Filmmakers competition.

“I am so proud of all the work these students put into the projects,” audio/video teacher Neda Morrow said.  “It took many hours of preparation, filming, and editing before the films could be submitted.”

Director Sydney Smith, Assistant Director Kaylee Rodriquez and their crew created a film about the 80th East Texas Yamboree in Gilmer.  Their documentary centered on the community aspect that the festival brings to the area each year.

“The Yamboree crew went to Gilmer multiple times to shoot this film,” Morrow said. “I really feel that they captured the essence of what the Yamboree means to the community of Upshur county.”

Director Sarah Huseth, Assistant Director Sarah Day, and their crew created a film about local Lindale community volunteer, Larry Wilson.

“I love how the Wilson film crew captured the inspirational quality of the volunteer work Mr. Wilson does for the Lindale community,” Morrow said. “Everyone in town knows Mr. Wilson, and we are all so appreciative of everything he does for us.  I am so happy the kids were able to create a film that honors him.”
