San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, is teaming up with the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) to hold the Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) SDCCU Redeye Competition. The competition will feature 17 student teams from 13 San Diego County schools tasked with creating a video in just one weekend.
“SDCCU is proud to support the San Diego County Office of Education and their efforts to provide opportunities for students to leverage their creativity, foster teamwork and enhance their skill sets that will benefit them for their entire lives. The iVIE SDCCU Redeye presents a unique opportunity for students grades 6-12 to begin building their portfolios for college and beyond,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “We are looking forward to the great work that’s produced during this exciting event.”
Here’s how it works: Filmmaking teams (comprised of five or less students and one chaperone) have just one weekend to make a 30-second video. All creativity—shooting, editing and adding a musical soundtrack—must occur in a 36-hour period beginning Saturday morning at 8 a.m. on February 28 and ending on Sunday evening at 8 p.m. on March 1.
