Two Consol teams win National Championship at SkillsUSA

The A&M Consolidated High School Video Production Development and 3D Animation Teams each won the National Championship in their respective categories at the recent SkillsUSA National Leadership Conference in Kansas City.

Madeline Packard and Kent Juliff, both 2012 Consol graduates, won first place in the Video Production Development by producing a five-minute short film based on the theme, “Hot times, in the summer, in the city.”  The pair, who will both enter the University of Texas Film School in the fall, had approximately 36 hours to create the video.  Packard and Juliff were coached by AMCHS Media Tech teacher Scott Faulk.

Junior Mark Ebbole and 2012 AMCHS graduate Hunter Rhodes took gold in the 3D Animation Category.  The duo was given a prompt and had eight hours to storyboard, model, texture, animate and compose a 20-second animated short.  Their video, titled, “Finding the Beat,” earned them more than $7,500 in prizes, including a partial scholarship to the Art Institute.  Ebbole and Rhodes were coached by AMCHS graphic design and animation teacher Barbara Klein.
