Students from Multiple Programs Help Create Promotional Video

The phrase, “The Key to Your Success,” has taken on a whole new meaning for students at the SWBOCES Center for Career Services now that they’ve finished making a novel promotional video that will be entered into the upcoming Television/Video Production competition at SkillsUSA March 13.

The one-minute clip titled, “Career and Technical Education: The Key to Your Success,” was made by students in the TV/Video Production Program, under the direction of instructor Tony Ely, but features students from the Architecture/Interior Design, Commercial Art and Carpentry programs.

In the opening segment, instructor Christine Ireland asks one of her students to design a 12-inch template and then give that design to carpentry students in Richie Thomas’ class to create a wooden key from the design.

They then passed it along to students in the Commercial Art Program, who were able to enhance the design using PhotoShop. The enhanced graphics were then printed by the students on the wrap printer and adhered to the wooden key.

Even Director Dahlia Jackson had a brief part in the video, encouraging prospective students to take a look at the many vocational offerings available on campus.
