Student filmmaking: Big things from a small program
Produced by students in the Communications Department, the series “Norwich Today” and “Our American Journey” have won national awards from professional organizations such as the Society for Professional Journalists and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. These include national first-place awards and a College Emmy.
The series have aired on public-access cable as well as on the Burlington, Vt.,-based CBS affiliate, WCAX-TV. Individual programs have also made appearances on Vermont Public Television and nationally on The History Channel.
The production unit uses high-quality digital media and professional-grade cameras. Post-production is accomplished with three state-of-the-art Avid Media Composers and a logging station with Adobe Photoshop and scanner. These are the tools used by major television networks.
