BUFFALO-Four Jamestown High School Sophomores recently placed 2nd for their investigative reporting; horror film video at the University of Buffalo’s High School Youth Film Festival per Jamestown Public Schools Coordinator Cathy Panebianco.
Corin Derby, Camryn Wilson, Kaylee Chapman and Alexis Cowen were among entries from multiple school districts according to Panebianco.
“This production team truly dedicated themselves to the task,” Videography and JHS Technology Education Instructor Sam M. Quadri said. “They took complete ownership throughout the pre-production, production, as well as post-production phases of the process. ”
“To produce an investigative report video, students brainstormed, researched and interviewed subject matter experts on the topic of their choice, in this video; it was about teaching and community education matters. Then, with technical instruction and classroom teacher coordination, they just went for it, all the way till the final edit. We’re all so proud of their accomplishment and willingness to put their work out to be screened among their peers from other schools in public at UB.”
