EDITOR’S NOTE: South King Media Founder/Publisher Scott Schaefer is a volunteer on the Advisory Board for the Puget Sound Skills Center’s Broadcast Communications Program. bcomm2016newflyer-oct17sample The Broadcast Communications program at Puget Sound Skills Center (PSSC) is nearly full, with room for just 16 more students. If you are a creative, tech-savvy high school junior or senior, this program will prepare you for the rapidly changing world of media jobs, which come with a good starting wage. You will get training in emerging technologies, including radio podcasting, TV, photography and videography. You can earn high school credit in Fine Arts and English Language Arts and can also earn tuition-free college credits. “This program let me continue in high school –which I was ready to leave without graduating– and become a leader in my chosen career of videography,” said Joe Mason, a recent graduate of the Broadcast Communications program. “I was able to produce a video that is being used to promote PSSC.” Here’s Joe’s video: [embed]https://vimeo.com/163765635[/embed] Another recent graduate, David Lara, produced a video which won Best Music Video in the Northwest High School Film Festival, the largest high school film festival in the United States. “Mr. Etherington made me feel good about what I was doing and allowed me to film in the language of my choice,” said Lara. Here’s David’s video: [embed]https://vimeo.com/181679185[/embed] Students get free bus transportation daily from their high school to PSSC.
