PR Students Convey a Message With a Video Spoof


This semester current and former Flash Communications students have been putting their video skills to the test, in front of and behind the camera.

JMC Associate Professor Michele Ewing asked us to help produce a video to be used as part of Kent State’s Public Relations Student Society of America’s presentation at the national conference in Washington D.C., Oct. 15-19. The goal was to produce a spoof highlighting what students should NOT do when interacting with professionals.

The conference presentation team included PR Kent seniors Aubrey Haskins, Stephanie Mathias and Rachel Polchek and junior Lindsay Ridinger. They presented to PRSSA students representing chapters throughout the country.

Special kudos goes to Flash Communications student Aubrey, who spent weeks working on scripts, emailing professionals for feedback, filming and editing the three-minute production.

Several University Communications and Marketing staff members and PR students, as well as alumni, contributed to the video. Former Flash student Tyler Norris and current Flash student Allison Brookes also served as talent in the video. It will take about three minutes to check it out.

Aubrey said the messages conveyed in the video resonated with PR students across the nation, and many of them have asked to use the video to present at their chapter meetings.

As an added bonus, check back next week for part one of a two-part series of interviews that Aubrey shot, which feature communications and public relations professionals who talk about best practices when it comes to students establishing relationships with pros.
