Marvin Glass and Sauda Porter – Video Switcher for Change

Date grant awarded: September 24, 2019

Video Switcher for Change is a project located at Perspectives School of Technology in Chicago, Illinois. Marvin Glass, who is an instructor and Sauda Porter, the Senior Director of Culture for the PCS network, will be leading the efforts behind this work. The project will allow their school to shoot live, weekly video announcements for the entirety of school using multiple camera angles.

This grant is important to their success because without it they would not be able to teach the class about all the angles – literally – of broadcasting. Marvin is inspired from when his high school had video announcements. The grant funds will allow us to purchase a video switcher to create these in an effective and meaningful way.
