Foster, now a junior at the New England School of Communications (NESCom) at Husson University in Bangor, Maine, was among the two-dozen college students and staff members spending the day at the high school to produce a live broadcast of the LHS Coffee House, an evening of student musical performances.
As the program producer, he worked closely with student producer Anna Shveshkeyev, one of Robinson's students.Ryan Carignan and Dave Roberts, also LHS 2011 graduates, worked to help familiarize current Londonderry students with NESCom's industry-standard equipment."As an alumnus, I was already pretty familiar with the concept," Foster said. "So for the past three weeks I've been figuring out all the logistics: the cameras, the lighting, the sound."
Dressed to impress in a sharp black suit and red tie, senior Joe Green looked the part for his role as an on-screen host.
Fellow senior Jonathan Klutsch, who will major in film at the University of Utah next year, said he's more comfortable behind the camera.
The NESCom team has previously teamed up with Robinson's students for broadcasts of sporting events, according to the college's program director, Rodney Verrill.
Previous collaborations with the college have also piqued the interest of high school juniors and seniors in the past.
Robinson said her favorite part of the process is catching up with some of her former students.
