LB TV student produces award-winning PSA video

Long Beach High School sophomore Melody Moy has earned a second place award in the Nassau County Drugs Alternative PSA Contest. A second-year Television Studio and Production student, Melody has developed the knowledge and technology skills necessary to create films that involve advanced techniques.

Melody’s PSA is titled, “Alone,” and portrays various stories that convey the detrimental impacts of drug use. It features a set of scenarios that illustrate the danger and isolation that substance abuse brings.

The contest was open to high school and college students, with the objective of helping to make Nassau County a drug-free community through education about addiction. As an award recipient, Melody is invited to a reception in March.   
Melody edited her film in the Television Studio and Production 2 class, where she utilized the high school’s computers, Final Cut Pro software and recording equipment. She is currently in the process of making her next film, which will be a movie trailer.
