When Andy Mingo, program director for the college's Digital Multimedia Communications (DMC) program was contacted by the Governor's Office of Film and Television with a great internship project for a CCC student film crew, he and his team delivered.
Andy, DMC students Mae Straight and Linda Rivera, and recent DMC graduate Gordon Christiansen, traveled to the Governor's mansion in Salem to film a public service announcement with Oregon's First Lady Cylvia Hayes for the "go green" challenge to reduce energy consumption. The result: the CCC team filmed, edited on site, and uploaded the video in a little over two hours.
Many DMC students have completed internship work in the film industry, gaining hands-on experience while strengthening their resumes. CCC students have interned, and in some cases gone on to be employed, at the following companies and productions: MTV, Portland Trail Blazers, Portland Winterhawks, Leverage, Nike, Univision, Funnelbox Productions, Kamp Grizzly and Cheesy Flicks.
Students in the DMC program can focus their studies in any of the following areas: motion graphics and computer animation, Web design, broadcast journalism, film studies, video production, audio and sound engineering, or music and sound for media.
