Dixon scholar wins film fest

Que’Vieon Preyer, an 8th-grade scholar at Dixon School of Arts & Sciences, won the middle school category for his film at the Youth Making Ripples Film Fest this past Friday at the Mote Marine Lab in Sarasota.

“This opportunity means so much to me,” said Que’Vieon. “[My Goal] is to keep moving forward and try my hardest on my editing career.”

Quevieon credits his success to his hard work, even from a young age.

“Editing has been my passion for years,” he said. “Staying up late nights and watching YouTube tutorials, and my work has finally been recognized. Dixon School of Arts & Sciences has helped me create this video and the teachers have given me the resources to excel.”

Quevieon’s film was one of 90 submissions at the film festival. Dixon School of Arts & Sciences was awarded with a $200 scholarship as a result. To watch Quevieon’s film, visit the school’s YouTube: https://youtu.be/1Km_FPYHqFE.
