Finally, here is a picture of me with Joelle (left), Susan (right), Ben (behind), and James (whose shoulder is visible in the lower left corner), walking back from lunch on Susan’s last day at the office. If you look close you can see that I am wearing an I♥NY t-shirt. This was not on purpose. Oh the irony.
My third week at Visual Aid Inc. was very similar to my first and second weeks, and that is a good thing. Overall, I’m having a great time working on various editing-related tasks, which I’m sorry to say that I still cannot discuss in detail to avoid revealing the secrets of various corporate marketing campaigns.
Finally, I have attached two photos. The first depicts the interior of Visual Aid's office, and the second shows the entrance to the Gotham Building, where it is located.
For my senior project I will be working at Visual Aid Inc., a small production company located in SE Portland. My mentor is Joelle Allen, who runs the company with her husband James. The company produces commercials and promotional videos for companies and organizations including Nike, Microsoft and HP. In their own words, Visual Aid is "a premiere post-production agency specializing in high-end corporate and commercial film." I plan on helping out with production and editing in whatever way I can, and hopefully completing my own commercial or other project. I have a fair amount of experience with film, but I hope to gain more exprience with film in the professional world and to learn how a firm like this one operates and communicates with its corporate clients.
