By Greg Cormier, SolidLine Summer Intern
Just when I thought I had done and seen it all at SolidLine, I wrap up the internship on a high note. I was able to travel to Baltimore a second time to promote awareness for patient safety with MedStar, take a long road trip (driving the signature Ryder rental truck) to Harrisburg PA, for another Mecum’s “Gone Farmin” tractor auction, and have my final two days of the internship in Plainfield, IL, making Christmas come early for Home Products.
As I reflect back on the three months I spent as the SolidLine summer intern, I can only be happy. The experiences I had and the numerous places I went made this summer one of growth and fulfillment. I was unsure at the start of the internship whether or not I was capable of being a helpful production assistant, but SolidLine not only made me feel welcome, but also wanted me to develop as part of their team. They continually were willing to give me a helping hand and immediately allowed me to be included in nearly every part of the production process.
All these experiences enveloped me in the world of video production. When I look back at my SolidLine journey, I will mostly think about the people I met and the many great experiences I had. I will remember that SolidLine not only wanted to produce smart videos, but had passion for their craft. What makes SolidLine successful is their reliance on each other. No day is perfect but, in fact, it doesn’t have to be. In the seeming imperfections of occasional disputes and disagreements, is the successful honing of a well-produced video.
I thank SolidLine for giving me the opportunity to step into their world.
All the best,
Little Greg-Lil Greg-Rusty
