RRC Academic Interest Areas Complete Video Series

July 19, 2017

“I am extremely proud to share with you the completed RRC Academic Interest Areas video series. This massive project – which took two years to complete – was made possible thanks to a tremendous partnership between RRC Marketing and RRC eTV studios. With the exception of hired voice talent and music track licensing, all work was completed using in-house personnel, equipment, and resources. Each video was carefully shot and scripted for a long shelf life, to align with and showcase RRC’s brand, and with the ultimate goal of providing prospective students from all over Manitoba and around the globe with rich media content to help them as they consider a RRC education – another set of powerful tools in our marketing and recruitment arsenal.”

– Christian Robin, Director, Marketing & Web Presence
