A Short Film Documentary on a Special Education School Celebrating 50 Years
RKS Associates is a network of special education schools here in New Jersey. GVCERV Communications has been supporting its digital marketing since 2016. One of the most critical aspects of this is also seeing an opportunity to tell a story that parents and professionals of special needs children are looking for to inform and engage.
That opportunity was discovering the story of how one of RKS Associates schools, Harbor School started back in 1968. After storyboarding the script of interviews, on and off location filming “A Story about a Harbor” took shape after five months in production.
A packed audience of harbor school parents and students, special education professionals, and community leaders got together to pay honor to the dedication of the staff who have made Harbor School what it is over the decades. The event opened with a welcome address by the Harbor School principal, Anne Gunteski. In addition, some of the guests were Anthony Talerico, Jr- Mayor of Eatontown; Eric Houghtaling, New Jersey Legislature Assemblyman, 11th District and, Dr. Kim Buxenbaum, New Jersey Department of Education.
The 20-minute film told the story of how the school started and progressed over the years. The harbor and sea theme of the Jersey shore was a perfect fit.
