Arcadia High School students earned one of the top awards at the Student Television & Film National Competition (“STN”) held in Nashville, Tennessee last week. The Arcadia students had to create, write, film, produce and edit a short documentary in 8 hours or less for the “Crazy 8s” Documentary Film Competition. The prompt for the documentary was “Sounds Good To Me”. For their efforts, the Titans were awarded one of the highest recognitions among hundreds of schools competing from all over the United States. Nearly 4,000 students from schools throughout the country, including Hawaii and Alaska, competed in multiple contests during the four-day event. In addition to the documentary competition, the Arcadia students were required to showcase their skills and talents in TV news & broadcasting, film writing, cinematography, editing and production based upon certain themes/prompts, specific time constraints and stringent rules. The competition was held March 15-18 at the Gaylord Hotel & Conference Center. Based on auditions, 10 juniors and seniors were selected to represent Arcadia at the National Competition:
Jacob Staudenmaier (senior)
Nick Forney (senior)
Dallas Greene (senior)
Narsah (Tate) Kharnis (senior)
Christopher Smith (junior)
Rachael Schulman (junior)
Lindsay Formica (junior)
Max Swiergol (junior)
Dash McDonald (junior)
Alex Teneyck (junior)
Eric Luse, Arcadia High School ANN & Film Instructor, and another SUSD teacher served as chaperones for the competition. Thank you to everyone who supported these students with donations and other assistance, making it possible for them to compete against other Film & TV students at the National level. CONGRATULATIONS TO THESE STUDENTS FOR THEIR AMAZING ACCOMPLISHMENTS!
