Sánchez dreaming in digital

21 hours ago | | | Email

Alex Sánchez has a dream: “I want to make movies.”Sánchez, 17, a senior at Smith-Cotton High School, has been given the opportunity to use camera equipment loaned by the University of Central Missouri to record video of the Tigers football games this season. Sánchez may not be filming movies yet, but it is a start.Sánchez is involved in a dual credit class, Introduction to Sports Broadcasting, through UCM. He attends every Smith-Cotton football game, records the entire game, edits and recaps the best plays, does a voice-over describing the action and makes all this into a three-minute video. It takes him a day, sometimes two, just to get the highlight package done.
