Get-Kinetic Crews Up with Audenried Charter High School
Guest blog by Dana Michael, Producer at Get-Kinetic
For the past few years, Get-Kinetic has been lucky enough to create comedic content for our friends over at Freightliner. These videos provide a chance for us to write, direct and produce brand humor. It’s like a dream, and as each year passes; the creative scopes of the videos get bigger.
This year the shoot required, for one, a school as one of the core locations. I reached out to the ever-helpful Greater Philadelphia Film Office who directed me towards Universal Audenried Charter High School.
If the pictures on Reel-Scout hadn’t already sold me, the staff at Audenried “had me at hello.” Larry Aniloff was amazing and ensured that not only did we have full use of the facility but also were able to incorporate the talented students in our video. I was invited to a meeting at Audenried for the Communications Program Occupational Advisory Committee. This program focuses in the fields of Communications Technology which includes; Audio Production, Graphic Design, Web Design, and Video Production among other visually creative design industries and technologies.
Knowing I wanted to scout my location, meet the students involved with our shoot, and interested in learning more about the school I was happy to attend. As a company that professionally produces film and video, I was wildly impressed with the curriculum, community support, and technical know-how of everyone involved. Was I in a college? They were discussing their delivered Green-Screen and showing is their well edited class projects.
This is all due to the Career and Technical Education teacher, Dan Martinez who joined Larry with assisting Get-Kinetic in having our every need met.
Day of filming went off without a hitch, as the students and faculty were more than happy to have our production in their school.
Huge thanks to Universal Audenried Charter High School and GPFO as well as our talented cast and crew for such a successful shoot. I highly recommend that local producers utilize the plethora of services GPFO has to offer (among which access to gems like Audenried) and cannot wait to return to the school to screen this video for the kids.
