All Aboard the USS Glacier!

The Voice Advertising Agency is filming and editing a video of a model of the USS Glacier that was originally built in August of 1954. Launched initially for the US Navy and later used by the Coast Guard, the USS Glacier was used as an icebreaker in addition to research voyages to Antarctica. Active from 1954 to 1987, the USS Glacier was a part of three separate operations. Unfortunately, it was scrapped in 2012.

However, a model of this historic boat was built and it rests in Stratford, CT with The Glacier Society.

The Glacier Society is a non-profit educational foundation that focuses on preserving history of America’s polar explorations in honor of the USS Glacier and all that served in the north and south poles operations.

The Voice has the honor of filming this boat inside and out to capture the real beauty the boat had.

Last Day Reflections

Today, July 9th, marks the last day at our internship here at The Voice. Time has flow by over these past six weeks. The four of us have seen and done much more than we had anticipated, and we are not complaining! Each of us had different insights and takeaways from our experience here at The Voice and here they are…

Sofia:

My favorite part was… starting a project and seeing it being carried out to the end. We did the story board for The Voice’s new video- the one that involves taking a tour of a 3D animated version of the house and the work we do. It was awesome to see our ideas come to life.

What I thought was most interesting was… the “Lunch & Learn.”  Learning about the history of advertising and all the trends like Art Nouveau!

I had no idea… how difficult it really is to be in a creative brainstorm session. It’s not a linear process where everything can be done at the end of a meeting or even a work day.

My biggest takeaway was… figuring out how to master programs like WordPress for blogging and website design and the responsibilities of keeping everything updated.

I would tell a future intern… starting out in a small agency like The Voice has it’s advantages. I think I had more hands on responsibilities and made more of a difference here than what I would have done in a big agency- where most likely I would have only been getting people coffee.

Breana:

My favorite part was…learning how to figure out with my intern team. We became very close professionally and personally.

What I thought was most interesting was…learning how to maintain and design a website.

I had no idea…the amount of work it takes to put into a video. It takes a lot of preparation, time and effort to perfect a project like a production video.

My biggest takeaway was…learning to work with co-workers in a professional environment. You will work with many types of people in your life and

I would tell a future intern…to start searching for an internship early. Internship positions are very competitive.

Molly:

My favorite part was… Seeing how a company, like The Voice, promotes and markets itself. Even though The Voice it an advertising agency it is still important to promote and advertise themselves just like an business would.

What I thought was most interesting was… How important contacts were! It is important to save and organize your contacts because you never know when or how you will need them.

I had no idea… How much brainstorming and time goes into a client pitch! A pitch itself might only be a half hour conversation with the client but it is hours, days, maybe even weeks of preparing that goes into it.

My biggest takeaway was… Proper communication between the account personal and the client is crucial. If there is a lack of/miscommunication between the agency and the client, well then there is no longer a client!

I would tell a future intern… It’s never to early to get an internship!

Caitlyn:

My favorite part was…being able to build lifelong relationships with my peers and the professionals in the field of advertising.

What I thought was most interesting was… all of the tools and knowledge needed to run and work in a successful advertising firm.

I had no idea… about how complex the inner workings of an advertising agency is on a daily basis.

My biggest takeaway was… was being able to work alongside the art director and others to learn hands on skills and knowledge that I would not have learned elsewhere.

I would tell a future intern… Just keep swimming.
