USF students partner with Fort Wayne Children's Zoo on video
When it comes to video projects, USF computer arts senior Blayke Kaufman and alumnus Andrew Lane make the Zoo's Who list.
Not only was their "Rain Forest" video selected from the Three Rivers Film Festival to air on PBS 39 among the best of the festival entries, it was created through an internship to educate elementary school students at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo.
After a visit to the zoo with his family, USF computer arts instructor Matt White quizzed the zoo's Cheryl Pirapato about the possibility of USF students producing a video for use at the nationally-ranked facility. "She put her trust in our students, and the rest is history," White said. The video will be used for education, and an internship program for USF students to produce zoo videos has opened up through the project.
"This project taught the students how to work with a client and create a piece that can be used commercially," White said. He also shared the credit with communication and music tech students, who helped out with voice over, music and folly.
