GIT students hired as reality show producers
December 11, 2012 9:50AM
What began as a class project has become a dream come true for two Pittsburg State University students.
Seniors Blake Broaddus and Devin Greenwood, both of Diamond, Mo. and co-owners of Antler Shed Media, have been hired as executive field producers for a new reality show. Quest TV, to air in the Midwest and nationally in Canada, highlights the ups and down of life and business in the outdoors.
Broaddus and Greenwood while at PSU launched Antler Shed Media, which provides photography, videography and design services for a variety of occasions.
“It started as a class project,” Broaddus said. “I had a graphics background, and Devin had photography. We had class together and decided to team up. We wanted to make some outdoor videos to show what it’s like and what it takes on a day of hunting or fishing. It kind of took off from there.”
A few of their videos were posted online at the video site VIMEO. Before long, the duo received a call from Dusty Altman, one of the Quest TV crew members.
“I knew Dusty a little, and he contacted us about being a part of this show,” Broaddus said.
Quest TV will feature a variety of episodes highlighting the life of an outdoorsman.
“It’s about hunting, but it’s about more than hunting,” Broaddus said. “It’s going to show how outfits run. It’ll highlight how hunts are scheduled, what guides do on those hunts and pretty much everything that goes into a hunting expedition.”
Both Broaddus and Greenwood enjoy being outdoors, so this opportunity is a near perfect combination of business and pleasure.
“We’re definitely getting to chase our dream,” Greenwood said. “It’s kind of cool to think about making a living out of filming hunts and being outdoors.”
