The Atlanta Technical College (ATC) team of Cory Way and Michael Harris placed second in the Digital Cinema Production competition at the National SkillsUSA Championships held in Louisville, KY, June 24–25. The winners were announced at the awards ceremony on June 26 and ATC won the silver. The competition was part of the SkillsUSA 51st annual National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC), a showcase of career and technical education students.

More than 6,000 outstanding career and technical education students, all state contest winners, competed in 100 different trade, technical and leadership fields. Way and Harris represented Georgia in the highly specialized Digital Cinema Production competition against 22 state champion teams.

“Cory and Michael are well on their way to becoming accomplished filmmakers,” said Britt Pitre, Chair of the ATC Design and Media Production Department. “I am extremely proud of their accomplishments and look forward to watching them excel on the national level.”

The Digital Cinema Production competition evaluates a competitor’s preparation for employment and recognizes outstanding students for excellence and professionalism in cinematography and short film production. The contest includes a written exam, a storyboard assignment, an interview, and a short video that will be filmed and edited on site
