Animation: Mr. Brooks and Mr. Hoffman are back at it for another year of creativity and learning. More and more students are joining the new Animation 1 "single" block courses! Along with Animation 2 classes, where students can continue their pursuit of 3d modeling, texturing and animation.
Great news this year for those students wanting to advance further in animation! Once students complete Animation 2; they can choose to continue onto Advanced Animation and/or our new course, "Video Game Design!" Mr. Brooks will be teaching Video Game Design.
Audio Video Production: This year the A/V Production Department looks forward to having guest speakers from the industry to spend time with students in class, as well as working in the amazing Buinger CTE Academy Video Production Studio.
The A/V Production Advanced students will be working closely with HEB ISD's Pennington Field staff to help them with this year's high school sports coverage. The A/V Department was contacted to help HEB ISD Pennington Field and NFHS Sports to form a comprehensive video driven coverage team to highlight all aspects of the high school sports that take place at the sports complex and at the high schools. Students will have the opportunity to create and share animations and video during the events to enhance attendees viewing experience at home on the internet. Additionally, this class will be continuing the Buinger CTE Academy Weekly Newscast in which students write, direct, shoot, anchor and edit an HEB ISD newscast that covers district news, sports, weather, and entertainment.
All A/V Production Advanced students will also be competing in various national and statewide video festivals this year including the internationally acclaimed South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, TX during the Winter Trimester.
