As of today, November 17th 2017, I had the chance to interview the telecom teacher Jeremy Muermann about his October 7th and 8th trip this year to the All American High School film festival.  The All American High School film festival is a festival held in New York City by kids all over 50 states and kids from 20 other countries such as Poland and China. Mr. Muermann says that it was great and it really inspired his students as they saw other kids their age from all over the country doing the same things that they where doing.

He spoke highly of the comedy films as they were funny and had a positive effect on his students. One cool thing that happened was when the film festival was over, a former student of his, named Dan Villanova and who worked at NBC, came over and invited Mr. Muermann’s students out to the building for a tour. With great enthusiasm, he described the tour and noted how good it was for the kids as they could actually experience what it is like to be in a real news studio. They saw the Today Show room, which was stated to actually be smaller then the thing you see on TV, and the control room which was broadcasting a breaking news story on a hurricane Nate in New Orleans. The next day, he met up with three others, Zach Ramos, Jessica Schlagenhaft, and Trevor Stankiewitch, to go out and go to the award ceremony for the All American Film Festival. All though we did not win anything, it was good for the kids as they can now learn how to make a better film from studying how the winners won, and how they could put those concepts into the films they make. All in all, this experience was an eye opener for the TV – 21 cast to see their skills get put to work.
