Today's Shoot - Schools That Shine - Harrison Elementary

Today's Shoot - Schools That Shine - Harrison Elementary

Today we conducted one of our many Schools that Shine shoots at Harrison Elementary near Long Lake.  My colleague Mike was with me and he was the one doing the shooting today since I was in producer mode. The children were sort of faking a video shoot for us since the program they won this month's award for is a film-making program.  The students write scripts, shoot the video and then edit the final product in iMovie.  Their teacher Mrs. Merritt heads up the program.  After the shoot we headed to a great little sandwich place called "The Village Tie Up" in Harrison.  It's a general store kind of place and it's right on Long Lake.  I got a sandwich called "The Pot Belly"!  It was a delicious pulled pork sub with melted provolone cheese!  Check it out if you're in Harrison!
