Hastings High class produces movie trailer yearbook videos

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

On their Facebook page, the yearbook staff from Hastings High School in Hastings, Neb., recently posted a series of videos created by the Beginning Journalism class.

The videos are another example of how effective montages using photos from the yearbook can be. However, these videos have a fun twist.

These videos are produced like movie trailers, which provides a dramatic effect. Take a look at a couple of the examples and see what you think.
