DCC Class Creates Video of MHW

Picture a bunch of college students finding an unused rolling wooden cart, rigging it with a camera and pushing another student  (aka: the camera man) around a building.  The reason?  To get a new perspective from a go-cart point of view.

That’s exactly what happened when the Mid-Hudson Workshop had the opportunity to share its mission and work with the Spring Semester, Advanced Video Class from Dutchess Community College (DCC).

In early January, Executive Director, Robert Nellis and Director of Sales and Marketing, Suzanne Stevens, met with the Associate Professor & Chair of the Communications and Media Arts Department, Dana Weidman and her students on the campus of DCC.  The students were preparing to choose their Capstone Projects for the Service Learning Video Projects. They were full of questions and enthusiasm and were anxious to get started.

Within a couple of weeks we welcomed several of the students to our 52,000 sq ft facility on Washington St, Poughkeepsie. They immediately embarked on shooting footage and developing their story boards. Over the course of several months they arrived bi-weekly armed with new questions and ideas for their video.  The warehouse environment proved captivating as the students found opportunities to film machinery, old photos and our employees.

The result is a refreshing new view of the Mid-Hudson Workshop and interviews with several of our employees. Thank you to the students who wrote, filmed and edited the video.  Thank you also to their professor, Dana Weidman, MFA and Dutchess Community College for the opportunity to be showcased in this Capstone Project.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
