Com Tech Web Site for

Bell High School

Welcome the wonderful world of Communications Technology at Bell High School.

Here we take photos, make videos, do some animation and write and record podcasts. We also study the impact of digital media on society. And most importantly, have fun while learning about digital images.

Each grade has its own web site. The links are below.

On this page, I'll post links to help you improve your photography. They may be random and things of interest.

Video Editing

Intro to video editing and Adobe Premiere Pro. The following link will take the Adobe instructional site dedicated to teaching you how to use Premiere. The videos are well shot and edited. They show you step by step how to use the program. They also have stock video footage that you can download and practice on.

Two other links for basic video editing.

If you find anything that is of interest that relates to Com Tech, chances are your fellow Com Tech students could be interested as well. Send me the link and I'll consider posting it.
