Here is what some of our community connections have had to say:
"The audio and video editing that these students did for my virtual play production was the quality I would expect from industry professionals! They eagerly brought their own creative ideas to the project, were willing to learn new skills to enhance the quality, and the final product far exceeded my expectations! I was proud to tell my community that KTEC students did the editing for Mt. Spokane High School theatre's first ever virtual play production, It's A Wonderful Life!"
