I was approached by a former teacher, Brian Bergin, at AHS to help film this project for a group of students. Ben Bregenzer and his crew organized the entire school to go nuts- clubs, sports teams, and the Redbird cheering section (the Redbird Nest) came up with all the crazy antics themselves. The main idea was that this video would be shown to incoming freshman to get them stoked about high school.
We did two runs through the whole thing, which took about 8 minutes each time. Aside from the DEAFENING noise, we had to dodge bodies, baseballs, and physics projects that were tossed in front of the camera. Originally, only Ben was going to edit something together, but I was so inspired by the footage that I decided to go nuts myself. Thanks to Michael Gebben at gebbs.tv for the BTS action.
