Student film takes first in nearby festival

Two Mountain View High School seniors recently nabbed first prize, and $2,000 in scholarship money, for an animated film they created in the district's Freestyle Academy.

Irene Lee and Raime Shah, both 17, wrote, drew and produced the film "Eggs Have Dreams Too" for a class in the Freestyle program, which gives students hands-on training in artistic professions such as film production and communication.

The pair decided to enter their film in the Bay Street Animation Film Festival, located in Emeryville, and beat out nearly 100 other entries in the "under two minute" category. Their winning film depicted several eggs talking about their life ambitions before being purchased and fried in pan.

The students received $500 each and an additional $1,000 for Freestyle.

Alright girls! Proud of you two even though I don't know you.
Good luck with your goals. It's great to see the Peninsula winning awards even as far as Emeryville!
May God bless America and protect Israel and remember the South Pacific Islands.
