Coming Soon: “Live from the Academy” 

Multimedia kicks it up notches to bring an engaging hour of content to our 3rd annual telethon.

With only one month to go before our third annual “Live at the Academy” Telethon, our multimedia team is in overtime. All told, there will be eight videos ranging from 90 seconds to 7 minutes long. The Multimedia Team, bottom-lined by staff member Dariel Paredes, has navigated dozens of scene changes, wacky costumes, props, lighting, and special effects to create funny, dynamic, and sometimes poignant glimpses into our community. Dozens of members have contributed their talents, on camera and off, to bring humor and insight to our telethon program. It has literally taken a village!

Each of us has been humbled by the outcome. We often say that we are stronger together. Projects such as these are just one example of the sum being greater than the parts. As we worked together, we each brought something to the table, but we were all surprised by the end result. Before it even airs, it has already exceeded our expectations. As much as we hope our audience will enjoy what we’ve created, the process has been a joyful step outside of our comfort zone.
