V. Demonstration/Celebration

Because the film had been such an all-involving experience for our students, we felt that our celebration of their efforts called for some grand plans. BITV proposed that we pair our film with a professional feature-length documentary on a related environmental issue and use our premiere as a fund raiser both for our next year’s Elwha Project expenses, as well as for their student film making scholarship fund.

Other community partners stepped up to help cover the costs of duplicating the film in DVD format so that each student could have a copy. The local theatre offered us free use of their screen for our premiere. One of our moms coordinated the PR efforts to advertise the showing and to be sure everyone who had been involved was invited. The invitations and advertising posters used the same student artwork that the film’s intro, credits, and DVD packaging cover had used. The event was a huge success. The theatre was filled to the brim. Fielding a variety of highly technical questions regarding this research, students were candid in the rigorous nature of this project and called the community to action. Their passion for this project was readily evident. Read about the celebration in the Bainbridge Review.
