Sydney Wilfong, Associate Editor

I’m Sydney Wilfong, a senior at AAHS. I’m part of the band as a proud tenor saxophone player. On the days I have time, I enjoy writing, reading and watching movies with my family and friends. I would like to go to film school, perhaps the University of North Carolina School of the Arts or any other film school that is somewhat affordable. With or without film school though, my absolute dream would to one day become a filmmaker and create the entertainment that film brings.

Love for filmmaking. This is a picture of an old film camera of mine. Whenever my grandfather passed away, I was given his collection of cameras, ranging from old to new. Although most of them dont work, I find them fascinating. I usually look into the viewfinder of these cameras to just see what the world looks like from a smaller perspective. With all of these pictures, I took them from the perspective of one of these old film cameras.
