,Video yearbook moves forward
By LAURA BISCHOFF
Producing a video yearbook is not
as easy as the final product makes it
look. No one knows this better than
the core of students struggling to get
"Michigan in Motion" off the ground.
Eric Capstick, president of the
video yearbook, and others face a
number of problems. To start: their
camera was stolen, funding for the
1roject is uncertain, and the Internal
Revenue Service has yet to grant
them non-profit status.
LAST YEAR the University's first
video yearbook was financially
backed by Yearlook Enterprises in
South Carolina. The camera work was
done by eight students but marketing,
sales, editing, production, packaging
and distribution was handled by the
cpmpany. This year the students are
king it all on themselves and will
e Yearbook Enterprises as a ser-
vice company only.
+ "If we get our act together this
year, it (the videotape) will turn out to
be a good one," said Yoonsin Park,
last year's vice president.
"Last year we didn't get a lot of
minorities in. This year we want to
change it. I'll be trying to cover a lot
of the minority issues," she said, then
added, "we tend to be forgotten."
CAPTURING the diversity of the
Jniversity is only part of the
challenge. They estimate they will
need to raise $6,717 for a new video
camera, advertising, and marketing
supplies and another $6,487 for a down
payment on the 500 tapes they expect
to sell this year.
Last year Yearbook Enterprises
sold 150 tapes at $39.95 each and lost
about $4,000 on the project, according
to Capstick. The student organizers
elieve they can do better this year
ecause they are starting to work on
the project earlier.
Also, they have 45 people involved
as opposed to eight last year, and they
will be able to cut costs if the IRS
gives them non-profit status.
IF THEY do not find funding for the
project, Yearlook Enterprises is
willing to back them again this year,
"They are totally willing to back us
because they believe the potential at
Michigan is so tremendous," Capstick
"Sales are going to make or break
us," said Jeff Libman, an LSA senior
who was involved in the video year-
book last year. He said publicity,
marketing and advertising are
crucial to sales.
THE PLAN on showing last year's
tape and footage shot this year in
campus spots each week. Also, they
want to be visible when out shooting
so they want to get "Michigan in
Motion" T-shirts or jackets, Capstick
Howard Goldman, a new recruit
who is working on the business end of
the project, said he feels the video
yearbook is starting to get the much
needed campus recognition.
Last month the group was turned
down by Michigan Student Assembly
for an $840 grant for a new video cam-
era but they will ask MSA for money
to pay for the promotional staff
jackets, Capstick said.
UNTIL funding comes through from
somewhere, Capstick said some
students have chipped in for a camera
to use in the meantime.
Capstick and Libman are in-
vestigating "all possible funding
sources" before considering cor-
porate sponsorship again this year,
Capstick is asking fraternities,
sororities, Hillel and the Board of
Student Publications for financial
backing. He has also shown the 1985
tape to the orientation office, ad-
missions office, the athletic depar-
tment and other University ad-
ministration offices in case they want
to use the tape for promotional pur-
IF THE administration is interested
in using the tape, editorial control
will be maintained by the students,
"The administration will have to
take it as it is," she said. "It is student
run and we have the power over it.
I'm not about to give that up for it to
be used for orientation."
Captstick said there is a possibility
that they may branch out and tailor
special promotional tapes for specific
University offices in exchange for
THERE IS a long way to go before
anyone will see the yearbook tape for
entertainment, promotional, or any
other purposes. Putting the tape
together takes a fair amount of time
and effort, according to Park, who
worked about ten hours each week
They need to assign people to shoot
events and lifestyle footage on a daily
basis in order to cover everything
from campus parties to sports.
The footage then has to be logged
and Capstick and Park will edit the
tapes weekly so they don't have
thousands of hours of tape to go
through in May, Park said.
CAPSTICK said they already have
footage of the Today show, George
Bush, women's volleyball, CIA
protests, and more.
Unlike a printed yearbook, the
video yearbook needs a video cassette
recorder for the consumer to use it, but
Capstick and Libman - neither of
whom have a VCR - don't see this as
"The word is that by the end of the
year VCR penetration will be 25 per-
cent. They're getting cheaper or you
can rent them," Capstick said.

Report cites progress
in teacher salaries
WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation
is making "slow, but steady
progress" recruiting more and better
teachers as salary increases are out-
stripping inflation, the Carnegie
Foundation reported yesterday.
Ernest Boyer, president of the
foundation, said its new review of
school statistics from each state
provides "grounds for cautious
But he added, "The challenge con-
fronting teaching in this country is far
greater than its achievements." He
urged immediate action to tighten
professional standards, boost
teachers' pay further and recruit
stand-out students for the profession.
Boyer released an update of a
report called, "The Condition of
Teaching: A State by State Analysis,"
first issued in August 1983.
Its author, C. Emily Feistritzer,
director of the National Center for
Education Information, said the latest
data on teacher salaries, test scores
and other topics "dramatically
demonstrates that all the brouhaha
over teaching is paying off in slow, but
