Hoosiers For Stutzman

I volunteered 150 hours as an intern for State Senator Marlin Stutzman's campaign for U.S. Senate during the month of January.  I still volunteer on a regular basis, but not as an "intern."



As an Apprentice, I have worked in 3 different areas.  I focused first on Audio Recording, which dealt with recording classical concerts performed by the DePauw Music School.  The second was on Multimedia Web Design, which focused on tools such as Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, and Premiere.  The third, and most recent, rotation is video.  In this rotation we critiqued films, learned how to operate a video recorder, and learned about the different types of camera shots.  For the final project, I and another student teamed up to create an interview of a student recently featured on DePauw's homepage under the Student Spotlight section.  The video will be posted on this site momentarily.
