Kudos to this year’s autoshowglobal.com photo/video crew covering the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The team included, from left, Stephan Franklin, Zanuel Moore, Prentiss Malone and DeVohn Piercefield. Zanuel and DeVohn are this year’s interns, on loan from the Detroit School of Digital Technology (DSDT). Stephan and Prentiss are part of the senior team and mentors, of course, who’ve been to more auto shows than they would like to admit. The internship program is a great way to expose college-age students to the work of automotive journalists and to experience the automotive industry’s most exciting time of the year — the auto show season.
DSDT is a state-of-the-art educational institution, creative arts center, 21st century business hub and technical training center located in southwest Detroit. The facility’s original name is Astute Artistry, LLC, which opened its doors in 2011 in Farmington Hills, Michigan. The school is a licensed proprietary trade school through the State of Michigan. Astute Artistry, LLC Specialized in Film Production and Creative Visual Effects. Additional curriculum was added throughout the years to enhance the traditional Film Production curriculum by adding more Digital Media, Digital Graphics and Technology. As a result, a name change to DSDT was imperative for re-marketing and re-branding purposes. DSDT opened a new facility at 1759 West 20th Street in Detroit near the Ambassador Bridge in the former Detroit Police Departments 3rd precinct. DSDT executives felt a calling to be in the city of Detroit to assist residents of Detroit and the surrounding suburbs more efficiently. For more information about the school, go to www.dsdt.tech.
