Randy LaBauve is an associate communications specialist at Louisiana State University, where he works as a videographer and video producer. He produces high-quality videos used in newscasts and for promotional and educational purposes. He also trains LSU AgCenter faculty members on video production techniques and communication skills.
LaBauve produces a weekly gardening segment, “Get It Growing,” with LSU AgCenter horticulturalist Dan Gill. The program airs on news programs in every major television market in Louisiana and is very popular with Louisiana’s gardening public. The videos are posted to social media, where they tend to receive a tremendous amount of engagement. He has been recognized for his work on “Get It Growing” with awards from ACE’s Critique and Awards Program.
LaBauve is a critical member of the LSU AgCenter communications team. He is eager to work outside of just video. He is a talented script writer, and as the communications staff has dwindled, LaBauve has been called on to write press releases and articles for other publications.
LaBauve attended his first ACE conference in Charleston. He has participated in webinars with the Electronic Media Learning Community and in online discussions. He co-produced the video for the ACE 2017 conference and will also present a breakout session on training youth to use video tools.
