ALC Films: Swamp Date

Brandon Arnold

This month the students of Mr. Arnold's Advanced Video class took a field trip to the Provo River to shoot their first short film, "Swamp Date." Starring Taylor Curtis and
Madi Swenson, it tells the story of an awkward first date out on the river. Despite rumors of people disappearing in the area, the couple stick with their plans of an afternoon of canoeing. Watch the film to find out what happens!

ALC - 3D Graphics and Animation : ROBOTS!

Robots by Devin E., Brandow W. and Braden S.

In my 3D Graphics and Animation class the students are learning how to use Blender, a software package used to create 3D graphics and animation. The first assignment was to model, surface shade (color), and render a Robot using Blender. The students where so excited I had a hard time keeping them focused on anything else. Everyone did a spectacular job! Attached are a few examples.

Students, Parents, and Patrons are invited to an open house on October 23 & 24 from 4:30 - 7pm.  Come and explore the classrooms and visit with faculty memebers.  Student work will be on display and several programs will have demonstrations.  Check the website for more information and updates.


The bus schedule for ALC has been updated again.  The Nebo Transportation Department has been great to work with and we appreciate their continued efforts to make the bus schedule for ALC work or all students who use it.  We are sure that their will be more changes as we increase ridership and have more learning opportunities at ALC.

The revisions this time are for the lunchtime routes for Maple Mtn and Springville.  Bus 05E will take students from ALC to Springville and Maple Mountain, and then the same bus will make the return trip going to Springville and then to ALC.

Concurrent Enrollment at ALC

ALC is working on getting approval for Concurrent Enrollment courses.  The process to gain this approval is rather lengthy and involves people from different departments.  This is a summary of the process.
