I'm just interested to know how good other member's school's video studio at school is. My school is rated the top in the northeast. We have about 25 eMacs, a PowerBook, my personal iBook, extremely top of the line broadcast equipment, fiber optic connection to the cable company, 5 GL1's, 2 XL1's, quite a few budget miniDV cameras. We just found out today we were given an 8k grant to buy whatever we want. The teacher and I spent it all today. We bought 4 GL2's, a few budget cams, a few 300GB HDDs, and I'm going to have my own personal iMac Core Duo workstation next year when I get back from summer vacation. This year for my workstation I use my iBook, hooked up to a DV Deck, Soundsticks, and two 250GB HDDs (One for the morning announcements, one for the tv show we do.) Every morning the second period class is Writing and Producing News For TV and they film the announcements. I set up a "budget" blue set a few months ago. I pretty much wiped a few fabric stores out of blue fabric. We have a 16' x 10' set that is covered with blue, along with the same on the floor. I have an independant study 3rd period (and 5th, advanced video production 6th, and work study 8th) I come in 3rd period, and edit the announcements. Every morning they are played right from the Final Cut timeline on my iBook to the school. We also have 1TB RAID server upstairs in the tech office that I use to store files back and forth. Our former superintendant who just retired loves Apple. He has a quad with dual 30" displays, and is good enough at Flash and FCP to write a book. When he retired he moved to Cali and went to work for Apple. Last year, all the teachers in the school got iBooks and the school runs on PowerSchool, so you could imagine that the video department is his favorite and he sends us anything we want. What is your school like?
