EDWARDS, Calif. – NASA intern Brian Armstrong has always been interested in aviation, thanks to the influence of his aerospace engineer father.
But Armstrong's passion is multimedia. He found the perfect summer internship at the Dryden Flight Research Center working side-by-side with the center's video team.
Armstrong has been given a variety of tasks during his brief internship, including filming NASA aircraft for the group's archives. He provided video support for the center's July safety day presentations. He is producing a NASA Dryden summer intern program recruitment video.
Armstrong graduated from Lancaster High School in June, where he managed the school's robotics team. He also served as their videographer, using his skills to record the team's activities and producing media events. It was through NASA Dryden's sponsorship of the team that Armstrong became aware of the local NASA field center.
An entrepreneur, Armstrong has his own videography and live sound business. Additionally, he works as an audio engineer for Lancaster's Performing Arts Center.
Soon to join the freshmen class at California State University, Long Beach, Armstrong will enroll in the university's film school with the dream of becoming a movie director.
