“Really?” won an Emmy. No, “Really?” , a video public service announcement really did win a regional Emmy. Fort Mill High School TV Production students Sawyer Bengtson, Mark Caponigro, Ryan Long and Mason Strohl produced a public service announcement last year called “Really?”.
Karin McKemey, the TV production class teacher (although she claims her role is a facilitator), who submitted the video project to the southeast chapter of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) stated in a post and Tweet…
“Ummm- ya, so my kids just won a FLIPPING EMMY… no big deal or anything….I’m speechless… very proud project facilitator moment!”
Other Tweets from friends, supporters and students echoed Karin’s happiness and excitement for her students.
The video project foursome was up against 6 other schools in the category of Public Service (PSA)/Public Affairs/Community Service Excellence.
Their PSA video project promoted checking facts before students spread information. A great message since social media is now a way of life for most students.
The students used time lapse techniques to create the creative posted note scene in their video.
The TV Production class is well known for their popular weekly TV show called FM BUZZ TV. Now they will be well known for winning an Emmy! Congratulations to Sawyer, Mark, Ryan, Mason, and Karin for a job well done, Emmy style!
