NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Students at North Platte High School have recreated introduction scenes from TV shows that are no longer on air to get a better understanding of video editing software.

Information technology teacher Brandon Petersen says his students shot and edited the introduction of shows from the 1980s and 1990s. Peterson said he separated his students into groups and let them decide what show introductions they would do. He said the selections were diverse and included comedies like “ALF” and “Friends,” as well as action shows like “Mission: Impossible.”

The North Platte Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1WCMDA9 ) reports the students then created storyboards depicting the scenes in the sequence that they wanted to film them.

According to Peterson, it was important for his students to learn how to use the software since they will be using it for future assignments.

“People use it when making websites. It is important in marketing and other types of industries,” Petersen said.

The teacher also says this activity will help the students learn valuable technical skills for college and beyond.

“We will create a tutorial that will teach people how to use the program’s more complicated features, and they need to know how to edit their videos to create that,” Petersen said.
