Dana Coburn – Time to Tie the Knot!!!

This week at The Rankin, we have been preparing for yet another wedding! The weeks leading up to weddings are the best, it is complete chaos, but we love it! Preparing the final touches is where the pressure rises. The wedding planner has been in contact all week and we are making sure the The Rankin is at its best. The bride has been in and out, and finally it is time for the rehearsal tomorrow evening. 

The wedding will be this Saturday, at 6pm, and will last until 11pm. Obviously, we have a long day ahead of us. The team, myself included, will be there ready to begin at 11am. When we first arrive the tables and everything will need to be set and ready by 3pm for the pictures and final walk through. This is the craziest part of the day because everybody is running in a different direction trying to get their task completed. From past experience, it will be a fast day with little time for rest. 

These ceremonies are all day events because we have to perform, ” the flip” which is reorganizing the way  the chairs and tables are arranged for the reception. While this is being done the guests will be enjoying their cocktail hour in the Atrium. Then at 8pm, the reception will begin. After the reception is over and the guests are leaving, we then begin our last task of breaking down the event.

I will have great, memorable pictures to blog about on Monday. I have heard the weather should be great, but you just never know. Keep your fingers crossed that we don’t freeze on Saturday. Everybody remember, The Rankin Gardens & Atrium when planning for a future wedding!

Jessica Word – Working with NPACE

The NPACE Center has been hustling and bustling to keep up with Artbeat this week! Students could be seen carrying cameras, tripods, etc. all around downtown and in the surrounding area.

Tyler and I shot the Sculpture walk Thursday afternoon. I am not from Columbus and am unfamiliar with downtown and its sculptures. This tour was very small which turned out to be a good thing, because the group leader took her time and explained more about each sculpture and the artist. It was very interesting!

After the tour, we came back to the NPACE Center and I archived the footage.

As part of my internship, I need to be familiar with many Adobe programs such as Final Cut Pro X, Audition, Photoshop, etc. In my integrated web design class, we were tasked with creating the home page of a website in Photoshop.  I have worked with Photoshop in the past, so it wasn’t that difficult to pick it up again and create this home page.

My group is working together to create a website for CONTACT, which is also an NPACE Center partner. Our plan is to create a potential website which they will then implement with the help of the NPACE Center.

Jessica Word- Working with Partners

Not surprisingly, this has been a busy week for me!

Professor Hart assigned me and a few other students to begin archiving hours and hours of footage from the Youth Orchestra. I was glad that I was able to do this, because I did not know how to archive tape in Final Cut Pro X. I am used to working solely with SD cards.

Later in the week, Tyler helped to update the official NPACE logo, which I then updated it on the official Facebook page and will now be using this logo anywhere the NPACE center is represented.

In my integrated web design class, I am working on a group project working with a local non-profit and NPACE partner, CONTACT of Chattahooche Valley.  My group and I met with Joy Norman, a board member, in the NPACE center conference room to discuss how we could help build a new website. This will not only greatly help CONTACT but will boost the relations between this organization and the NPACE center.

I am very excited to be working with local non-profits and being able to see the difference I am making in the community by working with organizations such as this one.
