It’s mid-October. Midterms are underway, leaves are falling, grass is changing, and students are… fighting? Not entirely.
Last week was Spirit Week, one of the most highly anticipated events of the year. During Spirit Week, the usually family-like campus community competes against each other in different teams, divided by their classes.
As part of Mount student Molly McKee’s internship at the Poughkeepsie Journal, she shot and edited the above video about the Historic Kimlin Cider Mill. Molly had this to say about her internship:
The Poughkeepsie Journal is a wonderful place to intern. I work for the multimedia part of the Journal, meaning I shoot footage either in the studio or on location. I then edit it and upload it to the website. Since working at the Journal, I have learned so much, including how to conduct a great interview, how to edit footage on new software, and how to use different camera equipment. The on-site experiences I’ve gained within the last month have been great! They have taught me so much about working in the “real world.” My favorite parts about working for the Journal are shooting and then editing footage. I enjoy doing this because I can really take the story that I am shooting and make it my own meaningful story.
Mount Media students recently produced a television campaign for the Railroad Playhouse to advertise their current production, “America’s Brightest Star.” Mount Media is the creative production agency developed to give media studies students hands-on experience working on productions and advertising campaigns.
In the following behind-the-scenes video, Mount students Greg Jacob and Lauren Parrelli talk about the production process.
Have you heard this summer’s hit song, “Call Me, Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen? So have my internship managers at Laerdal Medical. During the last two weeks of my summer internship, I was tasked with making a CPR video to that very song.
