MINOCQUA - People love watching commercials during the Super Bowl.
One Northwoods video club wants to use their skills to make one of those commercials.
You'll see this behind the scenes at most video shoots.
But for Charlotte Fohner's video students, this is their chance to shoot a Super Bowl commercial.
That's because Doritos will use the best homemade commercial.
"I went to the Doritos website and I read their rules. Kind of went through it," Fohner said.
"Then I emailed Paul, who is helping me direct the video club, and said hey what do you think about this for a project for video club."
Fohner formed a video club in September.
She wanted to help kids who have the same passion for videography.
"During the summer we often have high school age people to come and help us at our work place. One of them is high school senior named Paul Hein who was interested in learning more video," said Fohner.
"When I found out his friends wanted to learn more, I was like well here's an opportunity for me to give some of my knowledge to people who want to learn more and create a group."
So they used the Super Bowl Doritos Commercial contest as a teaching lesson.
"We've done stuff before, but this is kind of the first video we've done using the members of the club," Video Club, co-leader, Paul Hein said.
"As a club planning it out a lot in advanced and stuff like that. So I feel like this was a pretty good experience for all of us."
The goal is to have the commercial played during the Super Bowl.
They would also like to win one million dollar prize.
But for now, they're just focused on perfecting their skills.
"I think none of us we're expecting to win or are expecting to win. The chances of that are one in a very large number," Hein said.
"So I don't think any of us expected to win. We just wanted to have a good time and kinda get more experience."
WASHINGTON - UPDATE: 3-24-17, 4:00pm: Ryan bemoans collapse of health care bill:
Speaker Paul Ryan says the collapse of the House Republican health care bill means former President Barack Obama's health care law will be around for the foreseeable future.
The Wisconsin Republican addressed reporters minutes after GOP leaders abruptly shelved the legislation, averted likely defeat for the bill. But it still dealt a damaging setback to President Donald Trump, Ryan and an entire party that has long said it wants to annul Obama's statute.
MARATHON COUNTY - The suspect in a Wisconsin shooting spree that left four people dead has been identified, and court records show one of the victims was his wife's divorce lawyer.
A person close to the investigation identified the suspect Friday as 45-year old Nengmy Vang. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak ahead of authorities officially identifying Vang.
ST. GERMAIN - A school bus doesn't feature a lot of amenities. Seats, windows, and that's about it. But a company out of St. Germain thinks buses, and other big vehicles, make the perfect kitchens.
Caged Crow Fabrication is owned by Josh Romaker. He moved to the Northwoods about three years ago. Around the same time a woman in Madison approached him to help refurbish an old camper. He decided to make it into a food truck instead.
"We took on the challenge and that first build was featured on US Today and some magazines and our phone just started ringing. We've got them in Denver, Salt Lake City, New Jersey," said Romaker.
That was just the beginning for Romaker's company, Caged Crow Fabrication in St. Germain. They now specialize in food trucks of all kinds.
"If a customer wants a food truck that looks like a barn or a steam train or a school bus conversion, we really stick to the unique food truck builds," said Romaker.
The 1982 bus that Caged Crow Fabrication is working on now will be complete in a little over a month. The team made up of just a few workers has one rule- they never build the same thing twice. And they take their time.
"We have a sign on the wall here that says 'quality over quantity'. I think our reputation right now is really based on the attention to detail and I think we want to keep that up," said Romaker.
