Students who covered the event are more than halfway through the 8 month program, says Michelle Hill, Program Director of the Film and Video Program at the school.
“They have currently completed production of both a small business commercial and testimonial customer video for a local Orlando business. They are accompanied by two seasoned faculty from the Film and Video Program at F.I.R.S.T. Institute.”
Faculty bring experience from working in the industry at fine companies such as Universal Studios, Orlando Magic, Atlantic Records, EMI, Fox Television, Warner Brothers, U.S. Department of Defense, and Harcourt, as well as with musical artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Deep Purple, and the Blue Man Group. Graduates of F.I.R.S.T. Institute have professional careers in the audio and visual industry at places like CBS Radio, Disney, Universal Studios, Cox Media, and Clear Channel Communications.
"We’re grateful for F.I.R.S.T. Institute’s involvement in this year’s TEDxYouth@TampaBay event, adding more great young talent and energy to our 2013 TEDxYouth event."
