The Bronze Medallion of Excellence award in the College Promotional Brand Video category recognized the college’s video about its first responder and emergency medical technician courses.
The video features FDLTCC students and faculty talking about advantages of the courses and shows students in hands-on situations practicing emergency first responder techniques. Watch the video at fdltcc.edu.
FDLTCC Public Information Director Tom Urbanski worked with FDLTCC graduate Chris Brown of Cloquet to create, plan, record and edit the award-winning video into its final form. Brown has worked on about 25 recent video projects for the college, helping build a collection of promotional videos across a range of programs and topics.
“This award is especially meaningful because one of our graduates, Chris Brown, has done a tremendous job creating a solid library of videos that highlight the great programs and people at our college,” Urbanski said. “He has a gift for capturing and conveying the right story, and when combined with his technical skills, the end results are always great. Chris has been a key part of our video marketing effort.”
