A trio of Central Gwinnett High School students put their video-making skills to the test this semester while also helping the Lawrenceville-based Georgia Manufacturing Alliance promote its upcoming summit in Cobb County.
Nigel McGee, Robert Sima and Jakcob Zelaya, all students in the school’s Fine Arts and Communications Academy, have produced a 60-second video promoting the Georgia Manufacturing Summit. The academy and the alliance have a partnership designed to give students opportunities to produce real world work in the classroom.
The commercial is available on YouTube and highlights the event’s speakers and the presentation of the People of Manufacturing Awards.
“We needed a video promotion to highlight our Summit, and we wanted Central Gwinnett Students to gain a real-world experience by creating a video for an event that attracts over 700 people from around the Southeast,” Georgia Manufacturing Alliance CEO Jason Moss said in a statement.
The students worked on the video under the instruction of Nathaniel Thomas McGill, who is the school’s audio and video technology and film program teacher. McGill struck up the partnership with the alliance because he had met Moss while he was producing on a documentary on the history of manufacturing in the U.S. in 2013.
