The trip included several other instructors, as well as staff members Nick Dangeur, technical engineer, and Ed Jakober, media specialist, who support the program.
Students in the class also experienced an annual workshop on campus presented by Canon. They had hands-on opportunities to work with special video equipment, including for filming class projects.
The Advanced Video Production class in general exposes upper level students to a range of highly complex camera systems, audio equipment and studio/location lighting gear “that absolutely requires a focused team to operate safely and effectively,” Oss said.
Jacklin and Phillips are more than a year away from earning their bachelor’s degrees, but they came to UW-Stout already with video production careers in mind.
Jacklin enjoys hunting and fishing, and he works part time at the Menomonie Outdoors Sport Shop. He is aiming for a career in the outdoors industry, hopefully someday filming for the National Geographic or Discovery channels.
