Where were you in 2003?

Our team was aged from elementary years to their late 20s. 

Mike Tiesenga

As a sophomore, Mike is wading deeper into the waters of high school and the possibilities are endless. He’s learning to drive. He consumes way too much Mountain Dew and Littler Caesar’s. His LG flip phone has a camera and T9 texting. He spends his time with friends in the band for musicals, in the film booth for JV football, and mastering Lord of the Rings: Return of the King on PlayStation 2.

Josh Stanton

Josh is the coolest kid in 5th grade. After this school year, he will be choosing between going on the road with his band and getting drafted by the Detroit Lions. Josh’s hair is usually spiked with too much got-2-be hair gel. (IYKYK) He loves hanging out with friends, playing starfox and wave race on his N64, and going to Pizza Hut for a well-earned Book-It personal pizza.

Dan Martin

Having recently graduated college, Dan sets out to discover the world of Kalamazoo with his new wife Sara, and they settle on the shores of Gull Lake in someone’s unused summer cottage for the next 9 months. Having just graduated from Western Michigan, Sara believes they will leave her college home of Kalamazoo to discover what’s next.  But, the disc golf courses of Kalamazoo are high on Dan’s list to give this town a glance. Dan is shooting video on the advanced Canon XL-2 mini-DV big boy camera, which has the new technology of a digital timecode (while still actually just a tape), and editing Final Cut Pro on a colored cubey eMac. Hopes are high to get that project finalized on a fancy inkjet printable DVD with a massive 4.2 gigabytes of space…but the internet is as young as he, so time will tell who will win this battle of storage and playability. With the uncertainty of compatibility for digital video, Dan exports both .mov Quicktime files AND .wmv Windows Media Files for every project. Dan shares with his older brother Scott the name “Kzoom”, since Dan thinks it sounds cheesy, and Scott says “go for it.”  The web address kzoom.com is then purchased from an individual in Seattle for $500 who had been using it to put pictures online of his farm full of cats.

Kiah McMeekan

Kiah is a 2nd Grader who is passionate about the homelessness crisis in the toad community; she has dedicated her life to housing every toad she finds, by putting them in a box in her room. (Much to her father’s dismay.) Her other passions include working tirelessly to become one of the Spice Girls and reaching new culinary heights by making the finest mud pies in the Midwest.  

Jonny Finch

Jonny is a 3rd grader who looks like a 1st grader. He is a professional tree climber and local pioneer in the way of foraging and wildcrafting. He spends his evenings pondering the cosmos and his place in God’s creation. You wouldn’t think it at first glance, but this small suburban kid has aspirations.

Jordan Avery

After a strenuous day of third grade full of spelling tests, a Scholastic Book Fair, and some highly unmotivated recorder playing in music class, Jordan can be found blading at the local skatepark trying to emulate the latest episode of Rocket Power. After that, he’ll probably grab a bowl of Waffle Crisp and watch the Detroit Pistons obliterate the rest of the NBA.

Matt Davis

Matt’s working towards a degree in film studies and spending a lot of time hanging out at Video Hits Plus near campus. He’s working at Barnes & Noble and slowly saving enough cash to move back home and buy Coloma’s hottest VHS rental store, the Movie Zoo. We all know DVD is a fad so Matt’s investing heavily into pan-and-scan VHS tapes and Laserdisc box sets.
