SolidLine Produces CPR Training Videos 
Training videos are quite the norm around here, but producing videos that can help save lives is extra special in our book. SolidLine partnered with PulseAssist to produce two CPR training videos: one that is offered to healthcare providers and the other to laypersons. The videos include CPR training for an adult, child, or infant; how to help someone who is choking; and proper use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). The courses are online and designed so viewers can move at their own pace in understanding the material. There is an exam at the end of each video that grants certification when 80% of the questions are answered correctly.

"I thank SolidLine Media for their excellent work, their quick and timely communications, and their incredible patience with me as I worked to get my part of the video together," states Stephanie Sanderson of PulseAssist. "The videos are wonderful and look great and I have had many rave reviews from friends and family on how professional they look!"

Watch And Vote: SIU Extern Edit Challenge Videos
Last week, SolidLine was graced with the presence of two SIUC Externs, Patricia Pircon and Stephanie Wiewel. Both majoring in production, they traveled all the way up from Carbondale to join the crew during their spring break, and what a week it was! SolidLine gave the Externs a well-rounded production experience and even held a cupcake baking competition so the ladies could set up the SLM studio, interview crew members, and cut together videos of the competition. So in true SolidLine fashion, we present our latest Extern Editing Challenge, cupcake style. Click the link below to watch Stephanie and Patricia's videos and vote for your favorite!
