SASHP Digital Short #Quarantine Edition

Join the SASHP Peer Mentor Program in creating an SASHP Digital Short #quarantine edition to capture the fall 2020 semester.  

We can’t believe a month has already passed! It has been quite the fall semester so far — full of struggles and awkward Zoom calls, but of resiliency, hard work, and wholesome movie nights — and we want to capture it in a memorabilia video for our future SASHP community to remember. 

Be part of our SASHP Digital Short #Quarantine Edition by submitting your video with these simple steps (or see our quick instructional video!): 

  1. On a piece of paper, write out and fill in the blanks “Even though _________________, at least _________________.” (Ex: Even though I have bad WIFI, at least I can go to class in my bed. Even though I have to take Orgo online, at least I can cuddle with my cat.)
  2. Film!
    1. Catch your crumpled paper thrown from any direction.
    2. Open the paper, attempt to make the paper as flat and readable as possible, and show the camera what you wrote.
    3. Crumple up your paper again and throw it out of frame to the “next person”.
  3. Submit your video to our Google Folder.
  4. Need to review the instructions again?  View the instructional video on SASHP YouTube.

Be creative! Need inspiration? See some examples in the Google Drive folder.

Thank you and we look forward to your amazing submissions.
