I had the opportunity to work on an exciting project this week. Dennis Pevey is a 7th grade science teacher at eStem Public Charter School in Little Rock. The school is located in the historic Gazette building right in the middle of downtown. Their high school is housed across the street in the Old Federal Reserve Building.
This was a neat opportunity for me because I worked for the person that owned the Old Federal Reserve Building in the 90’s. I have been all through the building. Though I did not get to go in to it for this shoot, it is nice knowing that the building is being occupied by a high school.
Dennis Pevey was selected as a finalist in the NSTA Shell Science Lab Challenge. If he won, he could receive a $20,000 grant to improve the science lab he holds classes in at eStem.
We filmed all day on Monday, and I did a 12 hour edit on Tuesday. With a few more pickup shots on Wednesday morning we were finished by Wednesday night.
This was a fun job and I’ll let you know if Mr. Pevey won the grant.
