Douglas Byrd yearbook asks a simple question in video of the week

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

In this week’s yearbook video, we get a simple, well-done promotional montage from Douglas Byrd High School in Fayetteville, N.C.

The video does a great job showing off the variety of activities at the school, all of which will be covered in the yearbook. And contains a good hook for prompting buyers, asking, “What are you waiting for?”

Another potentially helpful tip – the video is credited to The TAG Crew, Douglas Byrd’s student-run TV production club. If your yearbook staff doesn’t have anybody with the know-how or capability to produce a slick video, partnering with the AV club might be an option.
