James GarbarinoThe Moore Athletic Center and surrounding area are a work in progress. That's easy to see when passing by Doak Campbell Stadium. But there also will be exciting changes for departments that play a major role in FSU's athletic success. Such is the case for Seminole Productions, which provides virtually every video service in the athletic area. It's a high-tech world and FSU will soon feature a system matched only by a few universities in the country.It's a high-tech, gizmo-charged world, even when it comes to collegiate athletics. Florida State will soon have a state-of-the-art production system at its finger tips, one matched by only a few universities in the country.No wonder Mark Rodin, general manager of Seminole Productions and 15-year athletic department employee, can barely contain his excitement. A department that spent time in the basement of the communications department in its early days will be center stage in the renovated Moore Athletic Center next year."When it gets done, it will be quite impressive," Rodin said. "You can now send a video signal a mile away and make it look broadcast quality. The technology is wonderful."Rodin has cared and nurtured Seminole Productions since 1988, when his department -- it was actually Rodin and a part-time assistant -- produced a television series called "Seminole Uprising." Since then, Rodin's staff, which has grown to three full-time employees, (Sr Producers Jim Garbarino, Dianna Garbarino and Jerry Tootle) in addition to an army of student assistants, provides virtually every video service in the athletic area.And it's only going to get better.Currently tucked away on the ninth floor of the University Center, Seminole Productions will be housed on the second floor of the athletic center. The department's 6,000-square feet facility will feature two control rooms, a 200-seat auditorium, a studio to produce the Bobby Bowden Show and others, 29 AVID edit rooms and plenty of office space.
