Partnership creates positive experiences for DMA students

HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Over the past year, a partnership with Remedy Live, a Fort Wayne radio station, has created numerous opportunities for Huntington University students to gain hands-on studio experience — all within a Christian atmosphere.

The partnership has given students, majoring in broadcast-fusion media and film studies, the opportunity to work on professional music videos as well as conduct interviews with national recording artists, such as Switchfoot. Students work in the studio and on post production.

“The station needs students and film gear from time to time to help on their music videos that they produce and in field productions,” said Dr. Lance Clark, professor of digital media arts film and communications. “We’re able to help them, and in return, our students are able to get professional experience working in the field.”  

The partnership between the DMA department and Remedy has been a positive influence for all students, Clark said.  

“Any time we can connect media and ministry that is a good thing,” he said. “Remedy Live is all about helping young people find Jesus and our DMA students can really see how their skills in film and broadcasting can be used for God’s glory.”
