So this was cool – video production students from Windemere Ranch Middle School got a first-hand look at how the pros do it when PBS “MoneyTrack” series went on location in San Ramon recently. The show’s executive producer Neil Alford (pictured at left with the students), a veteran of CNN, FOX and NBC, spoke with the students and answered questions during the 90-minute visit. Pretty inspiring stuff for the middle schoolers, who have been using iMovie to develop and edit weekly video segments shown throughout the school. The school’s production studio features video cameras, a mixing soundboard and video switcher.
