Like most of my classmates, I have also been struggling on choosing what my senior project is going to be. I want to reach out to people and tell them about my school. Some ideas were to write a book or to get students from our school to interact with others from outside of school. But I need a way to reach out to people and for them to be interested in what I have to say.
My idea is to make movies for/of my school. I want to have separate movies of my athletics, my class, my school, and myself. I have gone my whole life without having recording of my memories and this is a very special year for my family and me and I wish to be able to do this to have something for myself. I want to cherish my moments with my classmates forever and I believe that video would be the best way. I know that I would enjoy the making of these videos because it’s a way to reach out to people without me telling them directly. A very shy person like me has thought of a brilliant way to tell people what’s on my mind and I can’t wait to get started.
I would also like to make a movie that could sponsor the school in a way. Try to reach out for people through a movie that a student made, not a person that is being paid to record something that they know nothing about. I want this video to be honest but persuasive at the same time. Maybe two separate videos on recruiting future students of The Chinquapin School/Chinquapin Prep and to get donors to help our school. I’m pretty sure that the school and the board will want me to follow some guidelines on this video so I’ll have to wait on a response.
I still have a long way to go on this project. Please, if you foreshadow anything going wrong in this project tell me. Feel free to comment and let me know what you’ll think. Thanks.
