Video broadcasting students prepare for a trip to Hollywood

Posted:
BEAUMONT -

A television studio with lights, cameras, talent and guests.  It's here where hands-on experience is gained.

"It's not only hard work, it's just a passion, and whenever you have a passion, it's not even work for you," said Junior Eddie Edwards whose goal is to become a director.  It's in Camille Briggs' class where he's getting his start at accomplishing his dreams.

He credits his teacher for helping him perfect his projects.

"No, no, go back, do this, do that, this is how it's supposed to be. This is how it flows even better. So, by the time I'm done with the project, it's flawless," said Edwards.

Briggs' teachings go beyond the classroom.

"What better way than to show them what the industry is all about.," said teacher Camille Briggs.

Every other year, she takes her class to where the movies are made: Hollywood.

"We take a tour of all the television studios in Hollywood. Sony, Paramount, Warner Brothers, Universal. We tour the colleges there: UCLA, LA Film School, USC," said Briggs.

Their next trip is scheduled for December, and they're counting on you to help them on their journey. Another lesson from Briggs.

Public donations help students like Edwards watch real life directors yell out "Lights, camera, action!"

"The camera rolling, or the different angles of the director, telling the camera people what to do is just like, wow. This is what I want to do. This is what I'm getting ready to do," said Edwards.

Edwards, Briggs, and this video broadcasting class are ready to roll out the red carpet in the entertainment capital of the world.
