How a High School Film Team Scored an Interview with George W. Bush
A group of film students at Plainview High School were able to get a 30-minute sit-down interview with George W. Bush after they pitched the topic of Barney, the former president's late Scottish Terrier.
The seven-minute, heartwarming documentary shows the sweet relationship between the former president and his furry companion — a topic he was excited to chat about. Barney was able to roam the hallways of the White House as the first family's pet during the 43rd president's term.
The entire video was produced by high school students at Plainview High School and was used as an entry for the Texas statewide University Interscholastic League competition.
Team sponsor and PHS English teacher Doug Warren explained to "My Plainview," “The purpose of the Young Filmmakers Festival is to provide students with the opportunity to explore the art of cinematic storytelling. The films focus on storytelling using the techniques and tools found in the cinematic arts.”
