Graduation 2009: Tri-Cast

Once again, WDGC and Cable 99 (Channel 16 in Downers Grove) are planning on providing live coverage of North High's graduation ceremony, which begins at 7:00 PM on Friday, May 29. Hopefully, we can once again provide live coverage on the internet as well, at www.

A crew of students will direct and run cameras for the show.

South High's ceremony is being taped and will run on Cable 99 this summer. Copies of both ceremonies will be sent to surrounding communities for possible airing on their cable channels.


We are happy to announce the event went off without a hitch. And we even got a new type of shot for the video. For the first time, Mr. Waite was stationed behind Mrs. Ward as she shook the hands of each graduate after they received their diplomas. It allows for each graduate to be highlighted in a beautiful medium/full shot for the first time. This shot will be edited into the video that is for sale and that will air on Cable 99.

6th Annual Media Showcase

On May 22 Cable 99 holds its 6th Annual Media Showcase. The event, at 6:00 PM, in the Auditorium features thirteen short videos created by the TV 1 and TV 2 classes and the Cable 99 club. Films include a parody of Jurassic Park called Jurassic Teacher, a horror movie called Abbasolute Terror with a soundtrack consisting solely of ABBA music, and a video about a young man who loves Hot Fries so much he marries a bag of them. The videos are the product of many hours of work by many people, and we are proud to showcase them.
