My name is Katie Benedict. The sport media industry has always been a great passion and interest of mine. I began my career in the Media Foundations Certificate Program at Humber College in 2006 and continued my education where I obtained my diploma in Film and Television Production in 2010. I am currently enrolled in my third year at Brock University studying Sport Management, hoping to combine both my passions for media and sports.
I have been a team leader on many projects and have produced several short films/sport segments. These opportunities have enhanced my management and creative skills, as well as my attention to the principles of design. I have also learned the importance of marketing films/sports segments from pre-production to post-production. I have created several electronic press kits and communicated with media outlets to distribute press releases. I also coordinated and created marketing materials such as promotional videos, posters, post-cards, synopsis sheets, and trailers. I have facilitated multiple fundraisers, promotional campaigns, and gala screenings that have raised more than $4000 toward my third year film thesis, “Skater’s Edge.”
I have been a Producer at BrockTV working in the Sports Department for two years, where I collaborate with others in the all-around production of regular sports programming. This year I got the opportunity to create a new sports show calld Badgers 24:7. This show features in-depth stories on varsity athletes at Brock on the grit of training to the glory of a moment where they become some of the best athltes in Canada.
Feel free to check out Badgers 24:7 page on facebook. As well, here are the links below to check out some of the most recent segments I produced:
