Film Earns Hampton Bays Senior Third-Place Award photo
Hampton Bays High School senior Jordan Phillips and his teammate, Jack Murray of Eastport-South Manor High School, rose to the challenge and took home a third-place award in the television, video and digital film category at the 2018 New York State SkillsUSA Leadership and Skills Conference, held in Syracuse on April 27. 

The pair competed against 10 other teams to shoot and edit a short film based on a “cliffhanger” theme and were given less than 24 hours to complete the task. They produced the film using skills acquired under teacher Mark Deedy, an instructor with the Bixhorn Technical Center of the Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology in Bellport. 

Jordan said he was thrilled by the win.  

When not behind the camera, Jordan is involved in his school’s musical productions. He plans to enlist in the U.S. Navy this fall.
