The talented students in the Ballard High School Video Production Program will be showcasing their new work at a screening this Thursday, February 13. The Showing will kick off at 7 p.m. in the BHS Auditorium.
The screening is set to include short comedies and dramas, advertisements, news features, and music videos. Works that have recently won regional and national awards will also have their Washington premiere at this event.
Funds raised from the screening will benefit students in the Video Production Program, specifically assisting students to attend the annual Spring trip to Los Angeles to learn more about the industry.
Each year students in the program travel to Los Angeles to tour college schools of film and television, visit program alumni enrolled in these colleges or working in the industry, and meet with film and television professionals. Last year students visited Jason Cahill (Writers Guild of America Award winner for The Sopranos) to discuss screenwriting, and Visual Effects Supervisor Bill Powloski (Breaking Bad) to discuss special effects. Ticket sales and donations will make this year’s trip possible for all accepted students and provide additional production equipment.
Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for students and will be sold at the door.
