Fans of A360 News are saying goodbye and good luck to Academy360’s Fun Facts man!
Peter S., who has entertained viewers of the school news with his weekly fact-filled segments and charming personality, is graduating from Academy360 this week.
“Thank you to all my Fun Fact friends,” says Peter in his finale, “for my fun facts show it’s been a very great time to have you all!”
The Fun Facts Show got its start during the pandemic, when Peter asked if he could do a fun facts segment for the weekly school news program, which students were then filming at home with help from their parents.
FilmAcademy360 Director David DiIanni, who produces A360 News, suggested Peter practice how to use lighting and camera while at home recording in his living room. Once the students returned to in-person learning, Peter recorded his weekly segments in the Upper School studio with film studies teacher Alyssa Currey, who worked with him to insert visual effects. [You can see highlights of their work in the photo gallery at the end of this story.]
Watch Peter’s finale below and find out which A360 student has been passed the “Infamous Red Jacket of Fun Facts. ” To watch more of our students’ fantastic A360 News programs, visit their YouTube playlist.
Congratulations, Peter, on your graduation! Best of luck to you and to all your fellow graduates!
