TV Studio Produces More Success Stories

Long Beach High School TV Studio and Production students continue to make strides in their work on the big screen. Ashanti Sherred and Charles Mandell won awards in recent contests, and the high school is preparing to host its own Film Festival this Saturday, May 19 from 1-3 p.m. in the auditorium. All are welcome to see the variety of works that students have been creating in the TV Studio. 

On April 20, Long Beach students attended a film festival at LIU Post. Contestants from five schools entered a total of 12 videos with the prospect of earning one of the three awards being presented. Ashanti received the Open Genre award – one of the most challenging to attain – for her short film "Get Signed." The piece portrays young boy's daily struggle of dealing with a family member who has an alcohol addiction.

Students attended the Broadcasting Awards for Senior High at Southold High School on May 4, and Charles placed second for Best Opening Segment. His segment is used every day for the high school’s daily newscast, “The Morning Wave.”
