Fouke middle-schoolers debut a new production.

Students at Fouke Middle School recently had the opportunity to participate in an after-school technology camp focused on video production. The camp was made possible by an EETT grant awarded to the Fouke EAST program, providing video equipment and training at the EAST training center in Little Rock for high school EAST students, who then passed their new knowledge on to students in 5th through 8th grades at no cost.

Students learned how to plan, create, videotape and edit using top-of-the-line equipment and software, producing their own movie during the two-week camp. The film, about life in middle school, will be used at 6th grade orientation next spring.

At the conclusion of the camp, students showcased their work at Parent Night, screening their video for guests. Parent Lana Tatum said, “Danielle loved tech camp,”  while another parent, Jeanne Philyaw, said, “Gabby really learned a lot!”  Even the school superintendent, Tommy Tyler, stopped by saying, “Great film, great job.” 

A special thank-you goes out to the student workers who made our Tech Camp a success. Bailey Cravens, Editing Group Leader; Emily Conway, Film Crew Group Leader; Noah Rathburn, Acting Group Leader; and Taylor Easley, Documentation Group Leader.  “Without the hard work and dedication of these four high school students, our tech camp would not have been so successful,” said Crystal Hewitt, Fouke EAST Facilitator, when asked about the tech camp.
