In this throwback post, alums Bailey Galvin-Scott ’14 and Brendan James ’14 filmed a promposal by classmate Max Whitmore ’14 to actress/singer Victoria Justice. The two filmmakers then followed up with an on-the-spot, real-time documentary of her surprise visit to Newark Academy. The adoring 6th graders in the video are now seniors.
Bailey and Brendan went on to study film at Emerson College and Colorado College respectively and both are currently working in their field. Victoria did not attend prom, but Max, along with the many students who met her, were elated by her visit.
