April Students of the Month

April Students of the Month

Students of the Month

Ben Tarleton and Justin Souvanh have been named the Windham Regional Career Center's April students of the month. This honor is typically awarded to just one student monthly, but these two young men have been collaborating very successfully on a project in their Career Center's Filmmaking and Digital Editing class. It was Josh Moyse, one of their film instructors, who recommended them for this award.

Moyse's Filmmaking class is one of over forty dual enrollment courses provided through the Windham Regional Collegiate High School that are offered at the Career Center and Brattleboro Union High School. In recommending Ben and Justin for this honor, Mr. Moyse said that they "are working on a five to seven minute film that is a requirement for them earning their college credit. These two young men have shown initiative, creativity and professionalism while working on their project. They are making a parody of "Man vs. Wild", and it has shown real promise." He went on to share that students are not required to work on their projects during school vacations, but during February's, Ben and Justin took the initiative to shoot during multiple days of cold weather and managed to successfully assemble their own crew of fellow students and filmmaking class alums.

Ben is a resident of Marlboro and a senior at Brattleboro Union High School, which shares its campus with the Career Center. Ben said that he's enjoyed his filmmaking class very much. "It's the only class I've ever had where I've created a project that I feel has real value and that I want to hold on to." He went on to say, "I really like the technology, both the camera equipment and the video editing software. It's all a little bit like solving a big puzzle." Ben will be attending Keene State College in the fall and is still deciding on his major there.

Justin, a senior from Brattleboro, is also attending BUHS, and similar to Ben, has loved this particular class. He shared that he has always liked art and has been enjoying the creativity inherent in the process of creating a film, particularly in how one is able to tell a story through the lens of a camera. "I think it's interesting how the camera can capture many different perspectives about a topic or subject, more than you would normally manage to have in real life." Justin will be attending the University of Vermont in the fall with an intended major of computer science.
