We are fortunate to have Kaitlin, a video intern from Wilmington University, working for us at the winery for the next several months. She will be helping us by filming video footage for placement on our YouTube channel as well as projecting it (and still photos) throughout the winery. Some of what she will be producing will be informative for our customers and visitors, some of what she will be producing we will be able to use for promotional purposes. Here’s a short Q and A with Kaitlin so everyone can get to know a bit more about our favorite video intern. (Clearly you can see that she is a smart cookie. We are lucky to have her!)
What you are in school for? I am going to Wilmington University to obtain my second Bachelor’s degree in Digital Filmmaking. My first Bachelor’s degree was in English and Film from University of Delaware, and I also have a Master’s in Human Resource Management from Wilmington University.
When do you expect to graduate? Summer 2015
What would you like to do after graduation? After graduation I would like to start my own videography business where I film and edit special events (no matter how big or small) for anyone who is interested. I would also like to eventually make my own feature-length movie (at least one!) that I write and edit myself.
What are your hobbies and/or interests? I make it a point to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends, especially my 1-year old nephew, Atticus. I love to travel the US with my boyfriend, Kenny. Last year we drove from Los Angeles to Philadelphia and this year we are planning on driving from San Diego to Seattle. I also love to take care of my 6-year old Corgi, Hoagie. We rescued him from Hartford County Animal Shelter in Maryland last year, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. He’s a great dog! And lastly, as you could guess from my degree, I am a huge movie and television buff, and I spend much of my free time catching up on both.
What drew you to the intern opportunity at Harvest Ridge?
First, I love wine. Second, I have an affinity for learning, and I was interested to see how wine was made. I was also excited to have the opportunity to capture my learning experience through film. Harvest Ridge is close to where I grew up in Townsend, Delaware, so I was excited to hear there was even a winery down here!
