House of BLUE Sweeps States!

PV House of BLUE students competed in two contest categories this year; Digital Cinema & TV/Video Production.  These students had the difficult task of creating short films on location in a 30 hour start to finish time period. Also included were two exams, interviews with judges, and presenting a portfolio of work including resumes, references, and pre-production for their films.  Every year, competition increases at the State Level, and this year there were almost 3000 students (a record high) from throughout the state competing in multiple contest areas. Once again, our students did an exceptional job of representing PVHS and the Chico community.
