Every 15 Minutes: Rancho Cotate High School 2013Visual Story Media
We crewed our first one of these way back in 2000 for Rancho Cotate High in Rohnert Park. In 2009, we actually produced the entire Rancho Cotate Every 15 Minutes video (including the intense overnight edit session to prepare the video for presentation to the student body the following day.)
Four years later, here we are again with a new crop of teenagers who not only face the dangers of drinking and driving, but have added texting into the mix of dangerous, distracted driving. We had five cameras on the field for the simulated crash scene, and four cameras followed the student actors as they played out the scenario in the hospital, county jail, and county morgue. We edited all that footage together with a backstory segment we filmed a couple of weeks prior, and present here the finished product, just as the students viewed it.
Warning: contains graphic images of simulated injuries. The injuries are only simulated, no one was actually injured at any time during the simulation.
