NewTek, All American Games Search for Best High School Video-Production Students
All American Games, producer of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, and NewTek, announce their third annual search for the best high school video production students in the country to form the “NewTek All-American Video Crew” at the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
High school juniors entering their senior year in the fall of 2012 are invited to submit video entries that showcase their work in video production. A panel of expert judges will select four students to participate in the production of U.S. Army All-American Bowl and Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl events. These students will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to San Antonio, comprehensive training on the NewTek TriCaster all-in-one video production system and 3Play slow motion instant replay system, hands-on participation in the live, national webcasts of Bowl events, interaction with players and band members, and much more.
Students must identify their roles in the creation of their video submissions. Video entries should not exceed three minutes and must be uploaded to YouTube or SchoolTube. A full set of rules can be found at www.newtek.com/aag. The deadline to submit entries is Friday, November 23, 2012.
“The U.S. Army All-American Bowl features the best of the best in high school—from football and band, to video production. These elite students are at the top of their game, and this weekend of events allows them to showcase their extraordinary skills,” said Doug Berman, All American Games chairman. “It’s rewarding for us to see the impact that these games have had on the futures of these outstanding students.”
“The students who earn a spot on the NewTek All-American Video Crew are considered the elite high school video producers in the eyes of their peers,” said Philip Nelson, NewTek SVP artist and media relations. “They train with some of the best video production experts in the business on the same equipment currently used by MTV, Miami HEAT and the New York Giants, NewTek’s award-winning TriCaster all-in-one production system.”
