Assistant Video Editor

June - September 2019 • Edinboro, PA

What I liked

I learned how to use a new editing software called VPT which could be used as a resume line and may impress future employers. My knowledge of Adobe Premiere also increased, and I spent a lot of the summer researching and learning about film equipment, which is not only valuable to know as a film major, but now I can also share my knowledge with fellow students who I see in the film equipment room.

What I wish was different

I wish the hours had not been limited to 20 hours a week, as I had to find and work around having a second job.

Advice

Don't waste your summer away at a job that is not benefiting your major. I learned invaluable information that I got to study through a professor in the field, and expanded my knowledge to excel at a future job.
