Coyote Digital Media

Coyote Digital Media is an award-winning high school broadcast (Rout(e) 131) and journalism program (The Southwest Shadow) at Southwest Career and Technical Academy led by Tom Rizzo and Matthew Laporte. I spent my freshman year learning the basics and then the following three years creating over 80 video packages alongside an AP and an extracurricular packed school schedule. 
KLAS TV --8 News Now-- came to SWCTA and interviewed Dr. Michael Georges and the Dental program for their segment "What's Cool in School."

"Mingson Lau (class of 2016) scored a real coup when he convinced Pat Skorkowsky, the Clark County School District’s  Superintendent to sit for an interview at a We The People tournament... he illustrated the video with some excellent B-roll. All of his shots contained good natural sound, and, most importantly, he told a good story about a new program at our school." - Tom Rizzo, Rout(e) 131 Teacher & Editor
