ORLANDO INTERNS CREATE PSA, STARRING JAMIE LEE CURTIS, FOR INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S CHARITY
The piece is part of the organization’s national “Kids on the Go” mobility initiative, and the focus of is adaptive bicycles that allow disabled children similar freedoms as typically developed kids.
From concept to delivery, the six-member intern group created the PSA along with producers Art Smith, Jr, Jolie Patricia Sester, Variety Florida CEO, and faculty member David Lopez.
“Variety Florida got the call from Variety of the United States that they needed help completing the project. After our group’s first meeting, we appreciated the need to produce a public service announcement creating and raising awareness about mobility issues facing many children. Variety is an organization dedicated to the cause of bringing children real, tangible help and we felt compelled to make a lasting impression. The interns agreed with the initial concept, and from there, we put our creativity to work.” said Natalie Zimmerman, marketing intern.
“The Silver Lining Studios interns were creative, professional and especially talented in their presentation of a thirty-second PSA that did exactly what we wanted it to do.” said the Star.
For more than 30 years, Art Smith, Jr. has been providing students with opportunities to gain experience in all aspects of media creation with their semester-long internship programs. Applications from intern candidates and from non-profit organizations interested in the intern program are accepted on an on-going basis and may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
