Featured Student: Sara Shields

11205507_1094288760588668_4648911632773368105_nWith a love for drones, web design and technology, Digital Media graduate student Sara Shields is constantly looking for new, innovative ways to tell a story. That’s what led her to her newest endeavor: graduation video “e-nouncements.” As she works hard in earning her master’s degree from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Shields shared with us what led to her passion for these new media projects and how she hopes to use them for her future.

Q: What is the “senior graduation” video about?

Sara: I just recently made a “senior graduation” video (shown below).
While I was doing a friend’s senior portraits, I also captured candid moments during our photo session through a video format.

Q: Why did you make the video?

Sara: I’ve always tried to find interesting or creative ways to visually tell a story. For a few years, I’ve been doing senior portraits and designing graduation announcements for college seniors. One day I was trying to think of new creative ways to announce a college graduation, when all of a sudden the video idea hit me: “E-nnouncements.” Rather than announce a senior’s graduation through printed images or invitations, why not “e-nnounce” it online through a video? Since my main passion is videography, I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to try something new and different on a digital platform.

Q: What would you like to do once you graduate?

Sara: Once I graduate, I hope to find a job doing videography or web design, as these are two of my passions.  


Sara received her bachelor’s degree in Public Relations at Texas State University, and now she teaches two Web Design and Publishing courses in the mass communication program and loves the challenges and opportunities in web design. Great job, Sara! If you would like a graduation video made by Sara, check out her contact information and website below!
