Punavision is an award-winning monthly half-hour video news journalism magazine. Each episode consists of several student-produced segments exploring the topics relevant to the Punahou School community.
Originally offered as a class, Punavision is now considered a club, with about 15 students participating each year. Students concept and produce their own segments, working independently with guidance from the club's faculty advisors. Each advisor has professional video production experience, and all are members of Punahou's Video Production Department.
Students learn to craft compelling 3 – 5 minute nonfiction stories through camera technique, interviewing, editing, graphics and music. Student producers also direct on camera student hosts for each episode.
Many of the student producers go on to study film or television production at the college level, and some are now working professionally in media industry.
Produced since 1984, Punavision is the longest continuously-running program of its kind in the nation. The show airs monthly on local community television (Olelo TV) and episodes are archived on the club's YouTube channel, along with archived webcasts of select Punahou events.
