GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD)-Careerline Tech Center, a service of Ottawa Area Intermediate School District, offers students hands on ways to explore several different career paths. This year’s Auto Show was a great experience for the Media communications students at the Careerline Tech Center. They got to work together with 5 manufactures, the Mosaic film Experience and Gentex to create a film that played at the Auto Show. We got to talk to Joey, a Senior at Jenison High School and a student at the Careerline Tech Center who got the opportunity to edit the film.
While Joey’s classmates were out shooting B roll, interviews, Joey’s job was to edit the entire film. He sorted hours of footage that was captured during the 5 week project, while students also recorded audio in post-production to add to the film. The film was a success and was show at this year’s Auto Show, you can learn more about the project here.
