Signal-to-Noise 2014 at the Sunset Presbyterian Church!
This is through the Beaverton School District and all schools are invited to submit entries. They are judged by age and category and must meet the criteria set in the rules. It's an exciting night for the students - it's their version of the Oscars. The video in this post is one of the finalist entries from Raleigh Hills K-8 School. This is from Mrs. Portinga's 3rd grade class.

The magic of Signal-to-Noise is when students have the opportunity to talk about the process of media production.
In 2005 the festival embarked on a district-wide tour making stops at each of our comprehensive high schools: Westview in 2005, Southridge in 2006, Aloha in 2007, Sunset in 2008, and Beaverton in 2009.
The Signal-to-Noise Festival originated at Beaverton's Arts & Communication High School, (currently the 6-12 options school known as Arts & Communications Magnet Academy).
When Tualatin Valley Community Television shared space on the ACMA campus frequent use was made of their studios for producing profiles about Signal-to-Noise award winners. The clip above is an excerpt from an extended interview with Montclair filmmakers in 2008. Note the young and spry Denis Berberovic seated to the right of the interviewers!
Since 2010 the flickering glow of Signal-to-Noise has lit up the screens of the Sunset Presbyterian Church each May.
