South Side Area High School Graduation 2020


South Side Area High School in Hookstown, PA faced a difficult task in providing the best graduation ceremony for its class of 2020 given the challenges presented by COVID-19. The school’s principal reached out to Cut ‘N’ Run Productions to discuss what type of production we could make for their school.


The school provided the logistics for how to best record each graduate safely and efficiently. Over the course of a three-day period, Cut ‘N’ Run provided a single camera with an operator to capture pre-recorded sections of the graduating class of 2020 to be live streamed on the school’s website in lieu of an in-person commencement ceremony.


The final, edited video was streamed on the South Side Area High School’s website and was pieced together to make it appear as though it could have been captured live.
