PERTH AMBOY – During the 6/18/15 Board of Education Meeting there was a presentation of the 2015 New Jersey High School Film Challenge with teachers of television production, Brian Wilson and Meghan Reeves.

On Friday, March 20, 2015, 19 T.V. Production students attended the 2015 NJ High School Film Challenge. The Challenge is a one week film competition.  Students have to create a 3 minute short film in 108 short hours.

Students where only given the following information on a Monday morning: The title of the film is “Forgotten” and had to use the character name, “Alex Johnson” and must utilize the prop of a cell phone in a medium and close-up shot. Students were instructed to think of ideas for a story, write a screenplay, cast the movie, create a shot list and produce and edit the film in one week (due that Friday).

Out of 100 films submitted in New Jersey, ten PAHS students placed in the top nine films and won for “Best Use of a Prop in a Short Film.”

The students will go to New York City with a special program and shoot a short film with professional actors of the course of three days.

“I am very proud of the work they’ve done,” Wilson stated.
