The friendly environment created within this cafe is perfect for those who want to have a relaxing afternoon with friends, or even for students who want a nice place to settle down and work on their assignments.
Walking into this cafe to complete this shoot did not feel like our first time entering, we were instantly welcomed as if we had visited several times before. It was a fun and relaxing afternoon at Mama’s Sweet Shoppe, and we look forward to being able to go back and enjoy the atmosphere in our spare time.
This video story was crafted and produced by digital media students from Anderson University’s Communication Program. As an Assistant Professor of Communication and owner of Rettew Creative, Bobby Rettew led a team of students in the COM 351 Corporate Video Production class to create these stories. This project provided a unique opportunity where students were able to leverage their technical video production skills along with enhancing their soft skills by interacting with clients and connecting with the downtown Anderson business community.
Each class Bobby Rettew shares, “Video production is more than the technical knowledge necessary to capture the story, but also the culmination people management skills and the ‘Tetris’ game of managing all the stakeholders calendars. To find and tell stories, you must know how to work with people and meet them where they are!”
