Editing a Thank You Video for SUN Tech Instructors
Those who know me know that, even though I moved on from SUN Tech after a decade of serving as their IT Specialist (that’s computer lacky in laymen’s terms), I’m still a very strong supporter of technical education, a friend of SUN Tech and I’m thrilled for every chance I get to collaborate with the school.
This year SUN’s administration thought it would be nice to send their instructors home for the summer with a special message from the students. They discretely skulked around the school throughout the final quarter filming student’s thank you messages to their instructors and then passed the raw footage on to me about a week before graduation. When it comes to video I am, admittedly, a rank amateur. It’s a skill I’m interested in developing but not one I would currently offer a client in exchange for dollars. But I love the school, support what they do and so I donated the time to edit the video. I guess that’s my own personal “thank you” to my friends and former coworkers at SUN Tech for a decade of guiding me through everything from car trouble to remodeling advice.
