Silverback Video in St. Louis was our business visit on Tuesday. CEO was joined by Granite City High School's video journalism students in Ms. Bristol's class. Silverback Video is a full service video production business. Owner Kevin DePew greeted everyone, spoke briefly and introduced Elliott, his production manager. Elliott and the Silverback Video staff shared the steps in the production process for an AT&T video from the pre-production and script writing to production and post production. We rotated from the 3D animator, to the 3D graphic artist to the audio designer. Students learned and watched how the final version of the video was so different from the original version based on feedback from the customer, AT&T. Students learned the name of the software each staff member used and asked questions about the process.

Owner Kevin DePew told his story and the challenges he faced along his career path. Kevin encouraged all students to sign up for an accounting class because the world runs on accounting and they need to understand it. He also told them to learn how to sell. Kevin sold cars at Weber Chevrolet for two years and he said that was the best sales training in the world. Kevin is proud of their work at Silverback Video and praised his staff of experts.
