Students in Mark Parker’s audio video production class recently submitted three videos to the UIL Young Filmmakers Festival.

The Young Filmmakers Festival is an  annual event where students compete for a chance to have their films chosen to be viewed at a public performance at an Austin theater.  While the students from Comanche did not win the contest, they did advance into the second round of the competition.

“There are four rounds, and two of the videos Comanche submitted made it to the second round, ” Parker said. “We improved from last year.We got some really good reviews on two of the videos. Our kids did an excellent job putting this together.”

Junior Cheyenne Tatanish and senior Lizzy Stewart directed one of the advancing films titled Finding a Friend which deals with theme of bullying .

“I had some bad experiences with bullying when I was younger,” Tatanish said. “So that’s where I got the idea for this video. I was very pleased that it made it to the second round.”

Links to the two videos that advanced to the second round are below.
