Léman Videographers 

with Patricia Williams for Y8-13  

When deciding to attend a new school, the campus visit is an exciting and important part of the process. These days, it is much harder for families to visit new schools because they are overseas or because of restrictions placed on visitors. This is where the Leman Videographers come in! In this club, we will make videos showcasing Leman – the students, teachers, building, and entire community – that may be placed upon the school website or shared with potential families. You will improve your interviewing skills, practice editing videos, and produce content that will be seen by students and parents considering attending Leman. This is a great opportunity to develop leadership and public speaking skills. Students who are interested in video production are encouraged to join the club; no experience in making videos is required, though a willingness to participate in all areas of the production process (such as script writing, interviewing, filming) is important. The final video will be a great product to include in your internship or university applications.

Myths and Fables
