Wright State University motion picture graduates donated their time and expertise to help several local businesses this summer.
Adam Clark, Chioma Ezeudu and Parker Bowling graduated in the spring of 2021 with bachelor’s degrees in motion picture production. They collaborated together while each directed, shot and edited their own individual promotional videos for Sand Dollar Music, Twist Cupcakery and Jubie’s Creamery.
Grace Randall, a December 2021 graduate who majored in design with a concentration in sound design, provided the music tracks for the Twist Cupcakery and Jubie’s Creamery videos.
The graduates chose the businesses because of their familiarity with the companies or they expressed an interest in the organizations.
“At some point in the Spring Semester we had an idea to interact more with the community since they do so much for us,” said Jeremy Bolden, instructor of motion picture production. “If the people of Dayton didn’t give our students locations to shoot in, we wouldn’t be able to make movies.”
The spring graduates chose the businesses because of their familiarity with the companies or they expressed an interest in the organization.
The projects allowed the students to produce a short video project after graduating and offered the businesses a chance to use the new video content for promotional purposes.
The production began in May and took several months to complete. Bolden is anticipating collaborative projects like these will resume next year. “I’m hoping this is something that we can continue to do,” he said.
