Andrew started out as an intern with me. His work ethic, intelligence, and eye impressed me. I asked him to stick around. Over the years we’ve gone from eating tuna melt sandwiches while keywording images, to video co-production for commercial jobs. Right now Andrew is pursuing a masters degree at Syracuse, and this is one of the pieces he put together in a quick 36 hours workshop. Check out his website: http://andrewhida.com/
Since 2001, Vince Carnicelli has been a police officer of the Auburn Police Department. As one of two officers assigned to the K9 unit, Carnicelli has trained, handled, and cared for Rayn, his black Sable German Shepard, since he was 14-months old.
As a valuable asset to the Auburn Police Department, Rayn provides the unique service of protecting his partner during volatile situations while on patrol. Often sent in as the first line of defense, Rayn prevents violent situations from escalating by calming the, “biggest, toughest, yellingest, maddest person in the world.”
Through a grant funded by a partnership between Walgreens and Milk-Bone, the Auburn Police Department acquired Rayn four years ago. Since receiving his police dog, Carnicelli and Rayn have developed a powerful bond that bridges their professional working relationship, and that of friendship, companionship, and love.
