The blogging community’s memory of my previous posts may be foggy by this point as it’s been much longer than I would have liked since I last posted, but I was inspired to reach out to Duquesne’s Liberal Arts community after meeting with my fellow bloggers this afternoon.
I wanted to let everyone know about an awesome opportunity for anyone who’s interested in sports, video production or even just earning some extra cash. As always, there are a ton of exciting opportunities for McAnulty students to get involved with, and one project I’ve been involved with for the past two years is Duquesne basketball’s video crew. A group of students, including myself, work with the talented Marty Corbett (who spends his springs and summers working on video production for the Pittsburgh Pirates) to produce a video show on the video board at the men’s and women’s basketball games in the A.J. Palumbo Center. Basically, we’re the ones who put together all the video, stats, replays and ads you see on the big screen in the center of the Palumbo.
We have a team of veterans that get along great, and we’re looking for some new people to join us. It’s a nontraditional way to get involved with Duquesne Athletics and do something that looks great on your resume. If you have any film or tech experience you’ll be ahead of the game, but we can train almost anyone to be a part of the team. Trust me–I was an absolute newbie when I started and now I can handle every position on the team. Plus, we get paid and there’s free food at every game. Always a bonus, right?
If you want to find out more, feel free to comment on this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll connect you with the right people. It’s a great way to support Duquesne Athletics and learn some new skills at the same time. If this doesn’t sound like the job for you then check out http://www.goduquesne.com/school-bio/red-blue-crew.html to learn more about the Red & Blue Crew. We could always use more fans, and let’s be honest–that’s a full time job in itself.
