July 5, 2012 · Updated 3:21 PM
Two community-oriented video projects by students at Oak Harbor High School are now being aired on Wildcat TV Comcast channel 21 which is available to many South Whidbey subscribers to Comcast.
“Face the Students,” a debate involving eight commissioner candidates from Districts 1 and 2, is on the air twice a day. A student panel from the high school leadership class served as panelists and asked the debate questions. The unedited debates are broken out by district, with each one lasting about one hour. A roundtable discussion by the student panel follows each debate.
The District 1 debate airs daily at 12:10 p.m. and 6:10 p.m. The District 2 debate airs daily at 2:10 p.m. and 8:10 p.m.
Meanwhile, “Thrill the Island,” a zombie video involving the high school’s Show Choir and a cast of community members from all of Whidbey Island, is on the air twice daily at 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.
“Thrill the Island” is a locally filmed tongue-in-cheek thriller about zombies taking over Whidbey Island, focused around the dance and music of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
