For the past week, SolidLine Media clients, viewers and readers have been voting in our Extern Edition of SolidLine Media’s Editing Challenge.

We typically impose this challenge upon our interns, whom we give a season’s worth of hands-on experience with video production. This time, we put our Externs up for the challenge. Our externs dive into SolidLine for just a week, but we pack that week with as much experience and education as we can. Externs, Rachel Head and Joe Klontz, from SIU, had to create a unique video using the same footage from our Pie Competition. Both get to cut and edit a short film, but only one gets to walk away with the trophy.
We posted their final cuts here on the blog, and fans like you voted.
After a week of voting and sleepless nights for our competitors, the competition is closed and the moment of truth has arrived.
Who will get the trophy and who get the respect?
The video with the highest number of votes was…
Extern Joe Klontz
Klontz thought he was at a disadvantage, but proved to overcome his challenges with the AVID suite to create a great video documenting our pie competition.
For those who missed it, here is Klontz’s final cut:
