Written by Oliver Rouch, Content Intern
When I graduated from Grandview Heights High School in 2012, I was not exactly sure what I wanted to do with my life. I knew that I loved two things: football and film. When I decided to attend Capital University in Bexley, Ohio I knew that I could pursue both of these interests by playing on the football team and by studying Electronic Media and Film. Before I knew it, however, my love of film and video production had completely taken over my heart and soul. The passion and dedication I learned from the game of football began to be utilized in a much different way. Instead of studying game film, I began studying films of David Fincher. Instead of reading a defense, I began reading camera manuals. Before I knew it, video production had taken over my entire life.
Thanks to Capital University and its incredibly talented staff I have found myself falling deeper in love with the art of video production every day. At this point in my career I have held four different internships in video production, entered into film contests around the country, created a full-length and fully funded documentary, and even studied abroad in Dublin, Ireland while creating a video series documenting my time in a foreign country. In that time I have learned a lot about who I am as a person and why I love to be behind the lens of a camera. Whether I am holding a boom pole, pulling focus, or sitting in the director’s chair, there is nothing I love more than helping a group of people to tell a story. I will be graduating in May of 2016 and I believe it is safe to say I am now confident that this is what I would like to do for the rest of my life.
After working as a freelance visual consultant around the Midwest and creating commercial content for a handful of different companies for the past year, I was lucky enough to catch wind of a spectacular opportunity to join the content team at MediaSource. I am thrilled to join a group of individuals that are as creative as they are hardworking and knowledgeable. Above all else, I will be able to grow as a storyteller under the wing of experienced and talented content producers here at MediaSource. I cannot wait to begin my internship with an intense passion to learn and contribute to this brand journalism team.
