Education Creates Opportunity
We are Tiffany Rogers and Levy Randolph, and we are videographers that seek to inspire faith in our nation’s education. We recently shot the promotional video that you see on this page for a Michigan school district. Their students and faculty are still doing sensational things. We collaborated with the school district and five of its outstanding students in order to create a video that would showcase the pride the student body holds in their schools.
Upon completion of this project, we started to realize that we have a deep desire to share stirring stories about the power of education and we want the American public to be just as passionate as we are. We will do this by:
-Highlighting America’s youth who are achieving fascinating accomplishments.
-Creating promotional videos for educational institutions and opportunities.
-Providing a centralized location where all of these videos can be viewed and shared.
Currently, we are exhausting our resources through rental equipment. The purpose of this Kickstarter project is to specifically help raise funds that will allow our company to purchase quality equipment in order to make the cost for individuals, organizations, and schools as affordable as possible. This equipment includes:
Two Canon HD cinema-quality cameras
Multiple Canon lenses
Kessler Pocket Jib
Kessler Cine Slider
High Quality Motion Stabilizers
Lavaliere, Shotgun, and Boom Mics
Editing Equipment & Software
Please check out the videos on this page; if they bring a smile to your face, if they make you believe that schools truly can make a difference in students’ lives, or if they give you a sense of pride in the student educational experience, then please contribute to the effort of our campaign to celebrate American education.
Who will this impact?
Teachers. First and foremost, we will provide teachers and students with a powerful voice to be heard. During the current economic decline, the American education system is faced with continual budget cuts, jumping through hoops, and making monumental sacrifices. We whole-heartedly believe our teachers' stories need to be told.
Students. This project will not only celebrate the youth who are currently doing great things with their schools, but will also serve as motivation for other students to pursue their own academic goals and passions. When students watch our videos showcasing other students significantly impacting their schools, they will equally be inspired to create, pursue, and revisit goals for their own achievement. This will truly be a project where youth empower youth through their own narratives.
Your Community. Beyond teachers and students, this project holds a broader impact that will build, develop, and strengthen our communities, to truly support education, our teachers, and our youth. Once our communities are strengthened, we can collectively push for an increase in compensation and resources for our teachers, while also creating opportunities for youth to network and grow.
Our Nation. This project has potential to impact policy makers specifically. Our videos will give these decision makers insight into what is happening in our schools. With that insight, policy makers can then make better choices with regards to how they choose to allocate resources and funding towards our educational system. We will bring priority to the classrooms.
Our hope is that you will help us in this campaign. We look to empower students, teachers, parents, decision-makers, and all members of the community to actively engage in our nation’s education. We will do this through creating cinematic videos that promote educational organizations and institutions, provide a voice for students and teachers, and bring awareness to the growing need for investment in the teachers of America and the leaders of the next generation.
