DMP Students Gain Hands-On Experience Through “Three Torches”

Introducing Three Torches, a news show made for FSU students, by FSU students. 

Students in the Advanced Feature and Reporting class worked to create this monthly feature intended to highlight our exceptional university community. While instructors provide support and guidance, the program is primarily student-produced. 

“The opportunity to host the first edition of Three Torches was a wonderful experience and having such a talented production team made the process seamless. I hope the show continues to highlight all of the amazing work from FSU students, and we can pass the torch to a new generation of Noles,” said Jordan Karnbach, one of the students who worked on the project. 

“I think the most enjoyable aspect was working with the people that we worked with,” said Luke Broderick, another student who worked on the project. “This show has been in the works for months and collaborating with everyone else has been such a delightful experience because it doesn’t feel like work, it just feels like doing something fun with friends. It turned out looking amazing because we had fun while doing it. Filming the show itself was so cool because we all were just enjoying putting everything together and making it look the best we possibly could.”

Jim Garbarino currently works as Director of Digital Media Services and DMP Professional Development and Outreach. He spoke to CCI regarding the Three Torches and how the skills that students learn on this project carry over into their professional endeavors. 

“As part of the student responsibilities in our Advanced Feature course and DIS initiatives, we have a new student produced television show along the same lines as Seminole Sports Magazine. The new Three Torches show expands the focus to include the whole university community. Students are charged with taking the features produced in the course and creating a ½ hour TV program every month. This expands the opportunities in this course to allow for show hosting, anchoring, show producing, directing, and many other real-world experiences and provides even more professional content for their resume reels,” said Garbarino.
