Tahoe Production House recently finished a really fun project with ADVANCE to show what they are all about. ADVANCE director Frank came to us with an idea of showing a pinball game explaining how confusing and random life can be sometimes, and how ADVANCE can be there to help. We took his idea and ran. With help from our great motion graphics artist, Cory Anderson, we created the below video;
We chose motion graphics to tell this story because we could control the environment, and really get our point across through Voice Over very quickly. We think it turned out great!
The Lake Tahoe Adult Education Consortium adopted the name ADVANCE to better describe the purpose driving the network of community partners, programs and services in the community. Key outcomes include providing personalized, contextualized and rigorous learning experiences to improve career and college readiness for all learners; improving English language skills; offering a pathway to a high school credential for adults who left school prior to completion; providing access to, and support during, pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship opportunities; and creating a hospitality, tourism, recreation and retail career pathway that not only improves participants’ basic skills, but also allows for gaining and improving employment and earnings.
Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) serves as the ADVANCE hub and is responsible for ensuring integrated, consistent, and high-quality services. Lake Tahoe Unified School District, El Dorado County Office of Education, and the Alpine County Unified School District are also consortium governing members. Network partners include a wide range of community, state and local government entities along with private industry and business members in California and Nevada. A list of active participants is available below.
