Central Lakes College first-year Videography Production students recently spent a day in the Twin Cities visiting television production facilities and meeting professionals who work in the field. Mark Ambroz, instructor, said the metropolitan area has a robust production industry. “The goal of this trip is to introduce students to the career potential in that market,” he said. The group visited KARE 11 in Golden Valley, an NBC affiliate that has a major news market share in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area as well as across the state. Students received a tour from KARE News Director Jane Helmke, who is a member of the CLC Videography Production Advisory Board. The students watched the morning show from inside the studio and met producers, photographers, and editors in the newsroom. They also toured Cinequipt and Tremendous! Entertainment (where the Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” is produced).
