GeoVisions' Work and Travel Student Takes Top Honors With His Movie

Posted by Randy LeGrant | Jun 15, 2012 11:53:00 AM

Here is an 11 minute movie (great water action and great music) produced, directed and even edited by one of our own Summer Work and Travel students, Alex Hooi Kuan Wai, from Malaysia.

Alex won an HR contest at Busch Gardens Tampa about the work experience at Busch Gardens.  It was open to ALL employees.  And we're thrilled to announce this short movie by Alex won him First Place.  And we're sharing this movie with you for two reasons:

  1. We want you to see the movie because it's fun and we hope it gives you some ideas for movies of your own that you can share with us.
  2. Alex can win other honors from Busch Gardens Tampa if he gets enough "likes" on YouTube.  Please go out and "like" Alex' movie.
Our CEO, Kevin Morgan, visited Alex on Wednesday at Busch Gardens when he was in Tampa.  When Alex found out we're pushing his movie out on our Pinterest Board, our Facebook Page and Twitter feed, he was thrilled.  "It has been an awesome experience being on this program, and the only regret I have is that it isn't any longer. I'm not ready to leave Adventure Island yet, but all good things must come to an end. Winning the video contest makes me proud. I'm proud to have represented the Malaysians, the International Students, Adventure Island and also GeoVisions, in producing the video, may it be a legacy for future program participants!"
Thanks, Alex.  Here's hoping you can get a lot more "likes" on your video.
