2012-13 producer of the Spartan News

Throughout 5th and 6th grade, I would always come home from school  and watch Smosh videos on YouTube. On the last day of 6th grade, my friend and I went to my house and made our first video: a video lip syncing to Peanut Butter Jelly Time. Since then I’ve never stopped making videos. From short skits about finding a killer bunny to me and a friend in a driveway dancing to Soulja Boy, it’s always been something I’ve enjoyed and continued to do year after year. This year, my main focus has been on Spartan News. Although it’s a time consuming process (shooting and editing) and things normally don’t go as planned, it’s been a delightful journey. I’ve had an unbelievable amount of support from not only Mr. Frontier, but the whole art department. What most people don’t know is that I also have a strong passion for photography. But I haven’t had much time for that lately. I’ve taken Photo I, II and III this semester, along with Computer Art (Video Production) currently and a period of independent study dedicated to Spartan News. In the end, I hope to end up doing something related to Videography or Photography as a full time job. Now, I’d like to take this time to advertise for Spartan News. If you have any interest in Spartan News or would like to just see how things work, feel free to stop by. We film every Wednesday after school. I won’t be here forever, and someone’s going to have to take over Spartan News! Also, if you have any suggestions or ideas you’d like to see on the news, talk to me or Mr. Frontier.
