Music videos are a form of storytelling, and four Skyline High School students decided to weave a story of their own around a well-known song.
Students Damian Banki, Jeremy Millar, Langston Nichols and Andrea Gomez acted in, filmed and edited a three-minute, 46-second video set to the background of Coldplay’s “Paradise.”
Their work was recently nominated for a student Emmy Award by the Northwest chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Their adaptation of “Paradise” is one of six nominations in the music video category, and they’ll have a chance to win the award at the 51st annual Northwest Regional Emmy Awards on June 7 in Seattle.
