Over the summer, a former classroom used for storage and copy machines was set aside to be revitalized and used as a creative space and interactive Film Lab at Thomas Starr King Middle School this year. One of our very own FAM parents Rani Ben-Ezra and his company, Basix Designs Remodeling, donated paint and time to breathe new life into the classroom with a beautiful coat of Beacon Blue.
The Film Lab will contain 10 editing bays, each with iMac computers donated from Nickelodeon, stop-motion animation hardware, microphones, and advanced editing software. The Film Lab will also have 10 brand new Canon Vixia cameras, a green screen, and screening wall. Announcements will be made when the Film Lab is fully operational and include a community open house. Stay tuned and be ready for innovative student projects this school year. Again, thank you Basix Designs Remodeling and Nickelodeon for help making this possible.
