Ashland Art Center Commercial

Thanks to recently graduated Ashland High School Senior, Pia Marchetti for making us this amazing commercial for her senior project. Pia really went above and beyond for this one, coming up with a concept, presenting it (very professionally) to the Directors, then coordinating artists and extras for the shoots, editing, overseeing the voice over, getting permission to use the music and putting it all together beautifully. We’re not surprised to hear that Pia is off to college at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh or that she is receiving a number of merit scholarships to study Theatre. Thank you, Congratulations and we look forward to seeing what you accomplish in the future, Pia!!
