Video Production Students Tackle Virtual Enterprise with Several Projects

Video Production students from the Regional Occupational Center were very involved in the California State Virtual Enterprise Competition and Trade Show held in Bakersfield in January. Two Video Production students attended a special evening event, capturing highlights from The BLVD. where 800 students from across the state gathered for fun and networking during the competition. They shot, produced, and edited the exciting video on site, and it was shared with the audience of more than 1,000 people during Closing Ceremonies the following day. Those same students recorded the Business Plan competition and provided students with a valuable learning resource as they now had the opportunity to learn from and improve their individual and team performances by watching the videos. Additional students from the AM Video Production class attended the Trade Show competition with the assignment to shoot, produce, and edit a 2 minute piece explaining what the competition was about, who attended, and the different products, creativity and business savvy on display. “The best part was seeing all the different business ideas come to life,” said Video Production student Damariaye Wilson. “VE was cool," added student Austin Sherrell, "I liked interacting with the schools.” Their video was shared with the PM Video Production class who had the same assignment. Both groups turned out some excellent work, applied technical and soft skills, and worked under the real-world stresses of deadlines, troubleshooting failing equipment, and uncooperative or unusable b-roll and interviews.
