A trio of Advanced Digital Media students earned an Honorable Mention award (second place) recently at the annual SEVA (Student Educational Video Awards) award night at Sacramento State.

More than 300 videos from students across Sacramento County were submitted for this competition.

“Happy Time Films” produced an instructional video, “How To Make Deep-Fried Oreos” and earned the highest honor ever by a Burbank video crew.Those students are Lang Thao, DeVaughn Magnum-Hines and Osiris Frazier.

The competition allows students from grades 1 through 12 to enter video projects in one of four categories: Instructional, Documentary, School News and Public Service Announcement. A “SEVA” and an “Honorable Mention” are given to the top two videos in each of those categories.

Finishing in the top 10 in their category were the following Burbank production crews:

  • Instructional: ”How to Make Ombre Nails” by Jasledes Productions (Jasmine McKenzie, Marlene Orozco and Mercedes Cardenas); and ”How to Make California Sushi” by Fireflies Productions (Lor Vang and Kimberlin Her)
  • Documentary: ”Profile – David Straughter” by Aatiqah Murdoch and Kevin Gooch
  • PSA: ”Don’t Litter Our School” by Mina Kong, Michelle Cha and Sarah Lee
