We knew from the very beginning that we wanted to produce a story about Neighborhood Reads. We felt that it was important for people to know that there was a new bookstore in our community. We agreed that it was important to promote this local business.
In this story, we got to know Dawn Kitchell and what makes her bookstore, Neighborhood Reads, unique. Kitchell explained the significance of her store’s location, how owning this bookstore has affected her role in the community, and how her dogs have had an impact on her store’s “home away from home” feel.
The story reflects the store's warm and welcoming atmosphere. We hope that by watching, you’ll want to stop by and pick up a book.
Although we were satisfied with the final product, we have to admit that getting everything to come together was far from easy.
As two highly involved high school students, we had scheduled events that affected the amount of time we had in the classroom during this production. Time is such a crucial factor in this class, so it meant we had to spend quite a bit of time before and after school to meet our deadline. But overall, once we overcame a few bumps in the road, putting the pieces of this story together came easily.
