"Around the Block" by Reniya Richardson

Junior class student Reniya Richardson is one of the many talented, creative students here at JSH. She created her very own animated video using a Wacom drawing tablet and it is titled "Around the Block" and she is ready to debut it to the world! "The video is about four ordinary kids who are only trying to enjoy their young lives while they still have it, but a corportation named E.L.S. wants to shut them down for good from their shenanigans. It's up to Jason, Big Q, Ace, and Jazmin to keep the fun alive for all kids in their neighborhood," says Reniya. One of her favorite shows is "Stevie Universe" and it helped spark her idea. She has always loved cartoons, animation, and is just passionate about this art style.

During the summer of 2019, Reniya will be a paid intern at The Lion Forge "a trans-media studio with a focus on comics publishing across all age groups." The studio also works with international media companies like Nickelodeon. Through the process of creating her animated video, Reniya pushed through a variety of barriers like technology issues. She says, "It was all worth it in the end."
