Chances are, you’ve seen Zeke Bryant around campus before. He might have been hiding behind a camera, but he was probably there, shooting video or taking photos of your student event. Zeke is the College’s multimedia specialist, which means he’s responsible for taking video and photographs to help promote all of your successes.
How would you describe your job?
I manage the Media Services office for the Fort Wayne Campus. I produce video, audio, and photography for internal and external use. My productions are used to promote events, clubs, academic programs, etc. I also equip audio/visual needs for events. My area is in charge of installing and repairing projectors and audio in classrooms and specialty rooms.
Where have we seen you around campus?
You may have seen me taking pictures at campus or student events. Perhaps setting up for a video shoot in a classroom or lab.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
First, no day is the same as the next. Each project has its own unique needs. Second is drawing attention to a specific need or focus artistically.
What’s the best thing about documenting days and events at Ivy Tech?
The reaction from people when they learn something new about Ivy Tech.
Zeke is always looking for interns. Want a chance to work with and learn from him? You should be familiar with Adobe Premiere and Photoshop and know your way around a prosumer still camera and prosumer video cameras. Self-motivation is a must. “I am a ‘hands-on is the way you learn’ guy,” he says. “I hand projects over with deadlines or a portion of it to complete.” Email him at email@example.com. To learn more about internship requirements, contact your advisor or program chair. Interested in working with Zeke as a work-study student? Check your eligibility with the Financial Aid office in Room 118 at the Student Life Center.
