BTO Documentary Filming

October 12, 2016

It’s a busy time for our 2016 Beat the Odd honorees. While they are completing their final year of high school, they are applying for colleges, going on campus tours and starring in their own documentaries.

The five honorees each participate in up to 20 hours of filming at their schools, homes and other locations. The professional videos highlight intimate details of each honoree’s life, their successes and challenges. The finished products are debuted at the annual Beat the Odds gala; this year the gala is set for Dec. 1.

“It’s so weird,” said Cierra Gunderson. “I get nervous with all the lights and cameras … but it’s fun.”

Production of this year’s videos are being done by Rex Camphuis and Waterproof Pictures.
