Michael Britt is Central Education Center’s audio video technology class teacher. He has worked in the video industry for thirty plus years. Before coming to CEC, Britt worked Georgia Public Broadcasting.

“I’m not a teacher, I’m a mentor,” He said as he explained his job. “I have not worked a day in my life; I enjoy what I do.”

Formally Britt wanted to be a fashion photographer, instead of going into the film industry, because he felt it would give him creative freedom. He later realized this was not for him.

“My class described in six words? Hands on, exciting, challenging, thorough, industry relating,” Britt told us.

Britt has always been interested in teaching, but he did not complete his college education.  Later, when he was offered his current job by the CEO of CEC, Mark Whitlock. He had so much experience in the film field, so not having a teacher’s education was unimportant. Britt’s experience in the field has helped him reach a point in his life where he is happy with his situation.

Britt told us “It has allowed me to grow and help others grow and succeed and working with young people keeps me young.”

Post-work, Britt enjoys street cycling and playing with his grandkids. His favorite stage direction is to yell,”STRIKE!” Which means it is time to stop and clean up. Britt’s favorite position on a live set is directing. He also enjoys production because once he is done he is able to pass it over to someone else to finish.

“I don’t have a favorite topic to teach in my class. Some days its lighting and other days it’s editing. All of the topics intrigue me,” Britt told us.

Overall, Britt enjoys working at CEC and teaching the children.

“I couldn’t believe people paid me to travel the country and do what I loved! My only regret may be not having come to CEC sooner,” Britt told.
