The Warsaw Area Career Center Radio & TV Production students recently aired with their first ever fully live show with on the scene reporting during Enrichment on May 17th. 
WACC TV students surveyed other students about their interests and questions.  All pieces on that Thursday's newscast were requests by students.  We saw a variety of investigative pieces, human interest stories, features, entertainment, and even a behind the scenes look at WACC-TV. Topics ranged from mold and temperature fluxes to this summer's World Cup picks....from stopped trains to life hacks and fun facts...even some student made commercials and movie trailers. TV Production students were doing some on the scene reporting as the EMT classes helped to teach lifesaving skills and as Landscaping classes continued to wrap up their courtyard remodel. Even though there were some minor bumps during the live show, the Radio/TV students were able to record it all and send it out to students & staff to watch later. Mrs. Hopper's students put in an enormous amount of work into this production & it was awesome! Great job everyone!

Mrs. Hopper's Broadcasting students visited their dual credit partner, Huntington University. Students enjoyed a day filled with hands-on activities, learning about HU's Digital Media Arts Program (Broadcasting, Film, Animation, and VR), screening films and helping critique HU student work.  It was a day packed full of fun and developing friendships with HU's amazing DMA professors.
Mrs. Hopper's Video Editing students filmed their "What's in the Box?" projects today. Students learn about scripting, filming techniques, and the editing process during the course of the semester.  This class is a great class for anyone interested in film, broadcasting, or just wanting another marketable skill for today's tech-savvy workplace.



Mr. Trent Long gave Mrs. Hopper's Radio and TV I students a tour of DePuy's television studio and control room.  Students were able to learn a great deal about how to get started in the Broadcasting field as well as how they could find jobs utilizing their skills locally.  DePuy graciously donated their SD equipment to Mrs. Hopper's class when they switched to an all HD studio.  Her students are blessed to be using such high-quality professional equipment.



On Friday, August 4th, nearly 300 people turned out to watch the red carpet movie premiere of John the Lion. Those in attendance were treated to an evening of laughs and some unexpected tears as the plot unfolded. In the movie, Chris Williams is a high school student struggling to relate in his history class. He is given an assignment to write out the life story of someone in his hometown who is over 70 years old. Chris just wants to make it through the assignment, but what he discovers is more than he could have ever imagined...
The movie’s director, recent WCHS graduate, Beau Eckel, enjoyed witnessing the emotions of the crowd first hand after working on the film for the past year as part of an independent study class. Following the showing, those in attendance waited in a long line to obtain the signatures of the cast and director. Comments such as “This hit home,” “I can’t believe a high school student made this,” and “Where can I get a copy of this to share with others” were heard.
