Cinematography student wins school awards for Skowhegan Fire Department documentary
A school capstone project inspired a student to dig deep into his hometown. ”It had to be a narrative, a documentary or a how-to,” said Shawn Packard, a Cinematography student at Full Sail University. “I live here, I have lived here my whole life. It has been home for me. It kind of means a lot with family and the traditions and the community that we have built here,” Packard said. As a graduating senior, he says it was important to him to leave and spread the legacy of Maine through film.
