<p>I absolutely loved my experience out there, and have been using everything I learned time and time again in my work here. I’ve also raved about it to as many colleagues who would listen.</p> <p>I’ve been meaning to send this since, well, May 2009, but something happened last week that made sure I put fingers to keyboard ASAP.</p> <p>My role here has evolved a bit, and I’m now playing an odd hybrid of reporter, editor and video producer for many of our special projects. Last week was my first official program where some of my videos would be shown in front of a few hundred area CEOs. As I cautiously approached my shiny new monitor and fired up FCP, I shivered a bit in fear. However, my KDMC training quickly popped back into my brain and I was on my way.</p> <p>When I did hit the initial, inevitable roadblocks that media production loves to spring on us, I ran to the KDMC tutorial. Your clear, methodical instruction calmed my near panicked moments, and slowly but surely walked me through any of the elements that were foggily hanging around the edges of my brain. In short, it was nearly as good as having Jeremy and Scot walking behind me at the lab. Well, almost. :) </p> <p>My experience at KDMC made me a sharper journalist, enhanced my career and understanding of the media, and just plain made me better. And I can’t thank you all enough for that gift. I’m honored to be a KDMC alum.</p>
