Magnolia's very own award winning Rattler Pit films and edits performances at all of the schools throughout the Pleasant Ridge School District to create professional quality DVD's. These DVD's include film footage and often slide shows with still shots from the performance. Parents love being able to sit back and enjoy the show without having to worry about filming.
The Rattler PIT Production Company is made up of 8th grade students with Mr. Peach as their director. All of the student tech aides that work in the Rattler PIT are involved in one way or another with the productions. These students film every district wide production with at least 3 different HD camera angles. Here is an example of the production workflow.

Log and capture the footage onto the computer.
Edit using multiclip- choosing the best camera angle.
