Heelan students will be able to produce higher quality videos in their Video Production Class this year with nearly $10,000 in new equipment, funded by a grant from the Gilchrist Foundation.

The grant funded four new Canon video cameras, a DSLR Canon, a lighting kit, a four-ft. wide audio booth for video narration, an interview kit with a boom mic, new tripod heads, new noise cancelling head-sets and camera cards.

Heelan students produce videos for school assemblies, fine arts activities, competitions, YouTube content and classroom projects. Learning to plan, write and record video projects nurtures student creativity, says video production teacher JoAnn Clemens, part of the technology team for Heelan High and Mater Dei schools.

 “I’m excited to have a classroom full of brand new equipment,” Clemens says. “Our students are getting all the latest new equipment to use with the Creative Cloud software.”
