It is always rewarding when our film/video students are able to find work in the industry, either on a volunteer/intern basis or in a paying “gig,” whether it is freelance production work or more steady employment.
One of our students (Paige Fischer) worked as an intern at 522 Productions in Alexandria, Virginia last fall (2014) semester and did such a wonderful job she was hired onto their team.
In fact, I happened upon a video on their Website where she appears in their “Approach” video for the company’s site. See her in the background of the screen capture below.
This semester we have a student (Evan Roseberry) from our Video I class last semester who is interning there this semester. I am confident he will enjoy the same level of success as Paige.
Thank you very much to 522 Productions and the other local companies with whom we have partnered to give experience to our students and let them explore their own creativity while also exploring job opportunities.
