Heather not only wrote, directed and edited the video, she wrote the song, sang and played guitar, and recorded it in the MCG digital studio. Not bad for a girl entering the 9th grade this year, eh?

CAPA student Isaac came up with the idea for making "the ultimate foreign film," paying homage to The Red Balloon. It ended up being pure comedy, but that's the beauty of being your own director and producer. The video stars the one and only Diego Mendoza, and features some out-takes and bloopers. Enjoy.
David is one of our regular students during the school year, and it was great to have him in class this summer. He absolutely worked his butt off to create this video. Every frame in this animation was individually created in Photoshop, then imported into Adobe Premiere. The song Letters to God is by Box Car Racer.
Diego's video started out as a silent film, but he let Cole create a remix of sorts, which is what you see here. The song is Deja Vu, composed by Takeharu Ishimoto and sung by Joanna Koike, taken from The World Ends With You soundtrack.
Kevin is one of the few kids that come to MCG from the neighborhood where it started. It's a shame in that Kevin has an great personality, a strong creative drive and some God-given talent, just like MCG's founder, Bill Strickland. Kevin focused primarily on music this summer, but also delved into Photoshop to create an image to go with each of his compositions. Here is one example called Eerie Floating.
Juan comes back to visit Pittsburgh every summer from his home in the Pacific Northwest, and this summer he spent most of his days at MCG. His video uses a green screen for background special effects, and features music he created in Sony Acid, plus a cast of students from various studios.
