Good Cameras Make for Great Documentaries
The students of San Pedro High School participating in IDA's Docs Rock program got new camers - thanks to the fundraising efforts of their teacher, Mr. Tony Saavedra, who used DonorsChoose.org to raise the money. Additional funding for the program was provided by City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council; and Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council.
Thanks to all of you who donated. Here's a letter from Mr. Saavedra expressing his gratitude:
I cannot begin to thank you enough for funding
our need for cameras in our project "Good Cameras Make for Great
Documentaries" Your generous donation has made the next school year an
exciting prospect for our students.
Students are very media aware these days, and they can accomplish things on computer and with technology that continue to amaze me. They are constantly showing me what is new in media. So, it is no surprise that they were able to use the cameras almost immediately. It was fun to watch them tear through the directions.
Please, remember that your support of public education and especially arts programs is crucial at this time. Keep active with public education, please. It makes such a difference.
