Clarkson's Communication & Media Department Hosts Night of Student Films
Potsdam, N.Y. -- Clarkson University's department of Communication & Media successfully hosted its first campus-wide screening of student films on Thursday, December 8. The event showcased movies created in several class projects and included mostly short films and animation.
"The students' creativity was on display here tonight," remarked Brenton D. Faber, associate professor of Communication & Media, who planned the event. "The audience was delighted with these projects."
Faber noted that the films reflected students' experiences, both humorous and in some cases tragic. Several touching films dealt with difficult subjects such as a friend with a terminal illness and reconnecting with an estranged parent. Other projects were more humorous, including a clever take on the silent film era and a movie offering viewers "savvy" advice for surviving North Country winters.
