Students in the beginning video production class (BC 251) took on the duties of video producers for Westminster’s Athletic Department this fall. Sports Information Director (SID) Nathan LaRiccia asked them to create video vignettes to spotlight some of the coaches at Westminster. The SID wanted videos with a non-scripted, organic feel.
We broke the class into three teams and each team focused on a coach and created original segments to share online. Check out their creations now featured on the Titan Athletic web pages on www.westminster.edu.
Head Football Coach Scott Benzel- Produced by Gabe Ferarro, Paden Jones & Nick Pizzuto
Head Men’s & Women’s Soccer Coach Girish Thakar- Produced by Zac Hynus & Channing Pifer
Head Volleyball Coach Tammy Swearingen- Produced by Jessie Klousnitzer, Kellen Gursky, Dan Swan & Marshall Lee
For most of these students, this experienced served as the first, real-world client interaction as video producers. Their work was well received and the SID wants to recruit more creations from the students in the Broadcast & Digital Communications program.
