Meet Blair Skinner

Filmmaker Blair Skinner credits St. Petersburg College with giving her the skills and motivation to pursue her dreams in Los Angeles.

"Every time I think about how I got out here, SPC is in one of those stories, so I'm very grateful and indebted to SPC," said Blair, who earned her A.A. degree when she was 18, thanks to the dual enrollment program.

Blair commends SPC's instructors and facilities. "The professors were all so kind and willing to teach inside and outside of the classroom," she said. "I also was able to rent out video cameras from the school and practice with them on my own."

Blair said SPC kickstarted her into her career, with earned academic credit for internships at News Channel 8 in Tampa and NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly in L.A. 

"I think anybody who's starting out or has been in the video production world for a while will really benefit from these digital arts courses," said Blair. "SPC has played a huge role in getting me where I am today."
