Hi there. My name is Makana Allen, I am a Junior of Waianae High School, I am in the journalism and film program called Searider Productions. Searider Productions has given me a clear idea as to what I want to be in the future. My current job is the sports secondary highlights and photos. My job is to take photos during games, to manage our livestream for our youtube, and to cover highlights during secondary sports games. I’ve been with in Searider Productions since my freshmen year. I’ve had a interest in making films and news stories since elementary and was able to join this program where I was able to learn different skills that have helped me make the best news stories and films that I could possibly make. Attending the Student Television Network in Nashville Tennessee will give me the best opportunity to test my skills in videography and photography. STN is a national film and journalism competition that happens across the country, where young filmmakers are put up against each other to create their best videos ranging from music videos to documentaries. This will be my fifth time attending STN, and I feel that attending will be an exciting experience that will help me grow as a filmmaker. I will use the knowledge that I have gained through Searider Productions to attend in this years trip. Being able to go and represent where we are from in these types of trips gives me a lot of pride because we get to represent Hawai’i and Waianae. Sadly this trip costs $2,000 per person, and we can’t pay for our whole group that is traveling, so I would be very grateful for any financial support to help us get to Nashville Tennessee. Thank you.
