The Cellar helps students express themselves with new technology
By Katie Pach
The Cellar is a class like no other.
There are no notes, no papers, no quiet moments, but plenty of possibilities.
“The Cellar is a class that focuses on video production, web design, and technology skills,” said Tim Kitson, captain of the curious ship – or teacher. “It gives students a chance to learn skills and have access to opportunities not available in other places.”
Students in cellar are often making promotional videos for different events, sports, and clubs around the school. Football, drama club, the annual dodgeball tournament, and anything else students see in the announcements the cellar class puts together.
“Expressing ourselves by creating things with people that share a common interest,” is how junior Morgan Gnepper explained the class she is taking for the first time.
Students film and edit the promos to be however their hearts desire. When the videos air on announcements it gives the creators the unique perspective of seeing what their peers think of the videos.
Promotions are used to inform the students, but also create an excitement and camaraderie.
