CEO & Co-Founder
I’ve been a part of the TV community here in Long Beach for a little over 10 years. Some of my experiences varies as on camera talent, story producer, and video editor at Renaissance High and Long Beach City College. I became a PADNET member because I wanted to further my love of television production and broadcast news.
I like the low costs and resources made available to members. The resources, such as: cameras, studio, editing booths, gives me the opportunity to expand myself to do more community involved events. PADNET allows a networking opportunity with others that are interested in video production. We are able to contact one another for crew projects, which also gives us the opportunity to have an insight on another’s perspective video style. And it also bridges the industry and community together such as: the crew members talent, local businesses, community events, politicians and community leaders as well as the performing arts in the City of Long Beach.
I feel that PADNET is important to me and the community because it allows community members the opportunity to be creative with visual expressions. Some people may have never had the time and/or opportunity to attend school to learn proper video production. Others may have industry experience and may need to freshen or sharpen their skills, and make use of the resources that are available to all PADNET members.Everything I’ve learned from both school and my 10 years of being active in this field, I am able to apply all my skills into being a producer. As the producer, I get the opportunity to see the production all the way through. I am forever excited working one on one with individuals I get to mentor (ranging from kids to adults) that are eager to learn journalistic productions. Some of my interns has gone beyond practicing to booking projects. When I see those whose hands I’ve taken actually working in the industry, my hearts smiles in knowing I’ve done something for my community...

Vith Rattana Ing
Vith Rattana Ing, known as Vick by his friends, was interested in L.B. In Your City News when he signed up to do his first story. His first assignment was to cover “First 5 LA Central Long Beach”, a story about community leader Juanita Wilson, aka Mama J. The First 5 LA Central Long Beach program is an initiative that advocates for children from prenatal to age five. This program helps the children get resources they need to support their development. During this time, Vith realized that his community needed their voices to be heard. He was amazed at how everyone lined up to be interviewed. Many attendees were very interested in being filmed and some of them even talked to him for quite a long time.
Vith is the oldest out of the six siblings. His family relocated from Cambodia to the United States in September 1985 after taking refuge in the refugee camp at Thailand border. In 1975, the year he was born, Cambodia went through a civil war known as the killing field. In 1975 the Pol Pot regime wanted the country to start from year zero. They killed great numbers of educated people and put many through harsh, back-breaking labor. They killed over two million Khmer citizens.
In 1980 he was living in the refugee camp. Due to exposure to contaminated water, he contracted a Tuberculosis-like disease called Pott’s Disease. It damaged his spinal cord at the T-4 incomplete. He can’t walk, but he can feel his legs from his waist down and was wheelchair-bound since the age of five. He was the first in his family to graduated Long Beach Jordan high school and completed his education at Long Beach City College, and California State Long Beach.
In 1990, he was involved in building a sports team for Rancho Los Amigos Rehabilitation Center in the City of Downey. He played wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, wheelchair football, and wheelchair hockey. He retired in 2003 yet he gives back by being a mentor for the Rancho youth sports program. Team sports have helped him learn that “teamwork makes the dream work.”
Vith comes from a family of teachers. His father is a teacher, and all his sisters are also educators. He enjoys coaching and teaching. In his spare time, he likes reading, photography, and watching Korean movies and documentaries.
Vith loves self-growth. He still continues to become a leader. In August of 2018, he graduated from The Long Beach Neighborhood Leadership Program, which is a city program for Long Beach residents to promote involvement in their communities through various projects.
