Video Crew

St. Augustine is proud to have a long-standing commitment to its athletic film program. Perceptions in so many ways are shaped by the film and television industry, and the St. Aug film department strives to empower students to assert their own place within that community. The quickest way for players in any sport to improve is by watching themselves perform, and building on what’s right or wrong. The film crew members help players work on athletic skills as well as interviewing and handling the media.

The Film and Video crew recently visited the LSU Manship School of Communications.
