Real World Experience

The Donovan Media Development Center has provided creative media services to over 100 organizations in Central Virginia.  These real-world clients benefit from affordable high-end production and project guidance, and our students benefit by having these projects used as instructional material in the classroom.

Students do not work on client projects for grades: all work is done by a faculty professional and paid work-study students with specialized skills.

Client projects are used as instructional material at every level of instruction, from introductory video courses to the senior media capstone class.  These relevant, current projects provide an enhanced level of energy and insight into the creative and technical processes of creating media.

Additionally, the center is constantly testing new technologies, and workflows before they are implemented into the classroom.
