Aidan, Charles, Daniel, Eli, and Joey met in middle school, where they became good friends when they decided to complete their NHD project assignment together. Despite splitting up to attend 3 different high schools, and with no teacher guidance, they decided to continue competing in NHD. Over 3 years of competing in the documentary category, they have been state finalists twice, and managed to become finalists at the National Competition in their Junior year.
