This documentary video project started when my Film Production teacher, Bill Vivian, asked me (Amber Reed, Sophomore) to help him by filming the Future Farmers of America's (FFA) Agricultural Day. I agreed and set out to film. I ended up spending the entire day with the FFA filming Ag Day and learning more about the odds and ends of FFA. I returned to film production class with the footage that I had taken. While spending the day with FFA, I became more interested in FFA and what it was. Because the FFA was foreign to me, I thought it would be interesting to learn more about it, so I decided to do a documentary on FFA's Ag Day.
I began finding people to interview for my documentary and learning more about what FFA did and who was in charge. I found that a lot of hard work went into planning Ag day and that a large number of people were involved. Through this project I feel that I have shed some light on FFA and some of the things that they do. I thoroughly enjoyed making this documentary, and now I can proudly say that FFA is no longer foreign to me.
