Never seen without his trusty camcorder, senior Kyle Ransom appears to be everywhere at once: soccer games, choir concerts, club meetings, you name it. Embarking on a mission to capture the 100th anniversary of Logan High, Ransom has launched his latest video project The Amphion, a collection of daily videos one minute in length, in an effort to capture the true essence of student life here at Logan High.
Ransom came up with The Amphion just a few days before school started. Earlier he had been talking with some student body officers about the history and legacy of the school spending his summer going through the archives. One thing that resonated with Ransom was old yearbooks, especially Logan High’s 1958 edition The Amphion, for which his project is named.
“Reading old yearbooks made me fall back in love with Logan High,” Ransom remembered. “I was kind of discouraged about it being senior year with all the construction, and these books reminded me of the legacy and how much we had to carry on and how much we could improve. I had this idea of daily videos on the past but never really had a purpose, something to drive it forward. I would just feel like I’m running around with my camera every day. But now, I feel a little less like that and more like I’m actually documenting something bigger.”
"Life in itself is one of the best movies we could ever watch."
