FINAL CUT PARTICIPATES IN VMD'S INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The studio gave Ramirez the opportunity to gain behind-the-scenes knowledge from experts in the field of editing software and hardware, as well as experience in completing music videos and commercials. Final Cut's Peter O'Donovan served as a mentor to Ramirez and says, "Venice Arts' programs are so inspiring. Their students, who would otherwise not have access to a digital lab and intense long-art mentoring, are a pleasure to have as interns. Kristen came to us extremely knowledgeable in the many technologies that we use, and it was a pleasure having her with us. I hope her experience here and the relationships she developed better situate her for her dream editing job after she completes her schooling."
The VMD and Venice Arts program hope other facilities will considering participating the program.
"I loved being at Final Cut," says Kristen Ramirez of her experience. "Everyone at Final Cut have always made me feel comfortable and I love all of them for every thing they have taught me."
