- "Curry Prime Time Report" Newscast and Student-Produced Film, "Reflexivity" Win Top Honors at National Media Competition
"Curry Prime Time Report" Newscast and Student-Produced Film, "Reflexivity" Win Top Honors at National Media Competition
March 21, 2016
Two staples of the Curry College Communication department's Television/Digital Video and Film tracks have been awarded at the national level. The student-run news program, "Curry Prime Time Report," and the most recent student-produced film from the RED Camera class, "Reflexivity," each captured the top prize in their respective categories at the National Electronic Media Association's annual student competition:
Best Newscast - "Curry Prime Time Report"
Best Short Film - RED Camera Film, "Reflexivity"
"Reflexivity" captures Emmy® for Best College/University Short Form - Fiction film
"Curry Prime Time Report" is a regularly scheduled newscast, part of the TV practicum course where students produce, direct, and host various programs for CC8, the Curry College television station.
"For student work to win at the national level is impressive," said Professor Jerry Gibbs, director of the TV/Digital Video concentration. "Our students are constantly striving to be their best and they put this effort into everything they do, especially in the TV Practicum course."
RED Camera is an intensive hands-on movie production course using the film industry-standard RED camera. Students learn professional-level production techniques, from preparation to post-production, along with the business side of film, including budgeting, rental procedures, and crew dynamics.
"The students worked all semester on every aspect of the production of 'Reflexivity,'" said Professor Todd Davis, faculty advisor for the RED Camera production. "The script was unconventional and they rose to the challenge of translating the story into a visually dynamic film. They should be proud of their efforts."
Congratulations to the students, alumni and faculty of the communication department for this outstanding achievement!
