This semester, the Ohio University School of Media Arts & Studies celebrates our newest faculty members with a short profile.
Andie Walla is delighted to start her new role as Lecturer of Video Production as part of the School of Media Arts & Studies at Ohio University. She completed her Masters in Computer Education and Technology in the Patton College of Education at Ohio University. Her first degree was in the Scripps College of Communication, majoring in Video Production.
Andie has spent the majority of her career producing videos for clients in higher education and the private sector. Her ability to produce, shoot, and edit projects from start to finish has created a group of satisfied clientele over the years. After spending nearly a decade as video producer at University Communications and Marketing, Andie has developed essential strategies for working with clients that she is ready to share with students.
Service-learning is a topic that greatly interests Andie. She has completed the Service Learning and Community Engagement Faculty Seminar at Ohio University. Andie teaches a class, Media Production for the Community, that pairs students with local non-profit organizations that have video needs. The students learn how to work for a client and create something that is useful to the organization. This also gets the students out of the classroom and into the community.
Outside of the office, Andie produces multi-camera live music videos for Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch just outside of Athens. Every summer, she takes students to produce live content for the jumbo screen as part of a multi-camera crew at the main stage for the Nelsonville Music Festival. The students take turns running cameras, directing, and technical directing for the live event.
Andie looks forward to working with more students as she joins the team in the School of Media Arts & Studies.
