Indiana Chronicle-Tribune article.

Taylor University in Upland has an annual filmmaking contest that’s open to all students, while several Indiana Wesleyan University students are making full-length films using Final Cut Pro. Dr. Scott Turcott, coordinator of the IWU’s Communication Arts Department, told the Chronicle-Tribune that film editing can be done on any of the university’s seven Macs.
“The best software is for Macs,” he said. “It’s somewhat intuitive.”
Darren Campbell, the student ministries pastor at College Wesleyan Church in Marion, works with a Mac and iMovie, the article adds. The church’s new center for its JC Bodyshop youth ministry is filled with Apple equipment that’s used by junior high and senior high video teams to produce videos and commercials. The center is also available to local school children. Campbell told the Chronicle-Tribune that “the next generation will take for granted the ability to communicate with video.”
