Students & staff document 10/11/12 as “A Day In The Life of NESCom”

On October 11th, the New England School of Communications asks students, staff and faculty to document their day from morning to night in order to capture the NESCom experience. Throughout 10/11/12, cameras could be found all over, carried by shutterbugs left and right. There was however one particular shutterbug who took it one step further.

Spencer Roberts and his GoPro hat

Spencer Roberts, a Video Production student, wore a GoPro camera strapped to his hat the entire day. He set the camera to capture one photo every 30 seconds all day and because he’s a NESCom student, that still wasn’t enough. Spencer took his entire day, set it to music and posted it to YouTube (of course) to share with his friends.

The end result can be viewed here.

Spencer wasn’t the only one taking photos. NESCom President Thom Johnston was even joining in on the fun, visiting classes and helping to show what a day at NESCom is all about.

We invite you to watch the slideshow below assembled all the photos submitted to adayinthelife@nescom.edu.
