Students involved in Club Live commercial
February 28, 2003
A group of South Tahoe Middle School Club Live members recently attended the premier of the current Friday Night Live public service announcement. The 30 second commercial titled ” Yearbook” was shown at the Arden Way Hilton Hotel in Sacramento during the annual state FNL consortium meeting of county coordinators on Jan. 30.
Preceding the premier STMS Club Live members and others did a brief recreation of the concept of the commercial. Following the PSA club members Darius Guerrero and Samantha Barksdale shared with the audience their experiences during the filming. Both felt it was a very positive, but long experience.
The commercial was originally filmed in September at Del Camp High School in Sacramento. A total of nearly 35 youths from California appeared in the ad. From South Lake Tahoe a group of 10 youths were involved in the shooting. Appearing in the commercial are Samantha Barksdale, Ashley Bennett, Christie Cotcher, Rogelio Garcia, Darius Guerrero, Anna Lambdin, Kate Lambdin, Audrey Roqueza, Delanie Sabac and Kyra Desilva.
Following the premiere county coordinators were given copies of the video and instructed to distribute it to their local television stations. Locally, the PSA has appeared on STMS’ Timberwolf Television station. It is hoped it will eventually appear on the STHS’ Viking Television and the local cable TV stations.
