Clarkson University's Communication & Media Department hosted its third student Film Fest on Thursday, December 7, in the Cheel Campus Center. At the conclusion of each semester, the department profiles students' work from the semester, both from video production courses and animation courses.
"The end-of-semester festival gives students a great opportunity to profile their work to the larger campus community," noted Professor Brent Faber, interim chair of the Communication & Media Department. "They get to see if people laugh at their jokes, are entertained by the story, and generally how an audience reacts to their work," Faber noted.
Communication & Media senior Stefanie D. Tornow was given the opportunity to put the film fest together and she jumped at the chance. "Coordinating the Film Fest gave me a chance to work in Arts Administration and get the experience of putting a large event together, it was a great opportunity," said Tornow. She also noted that the end-of-semester event "gives students and the department a great opportunity to let off some steam before next week's exams." This is the third student film fest hosted by the Communication & Media Department. The program offers courses in Web design, new media, film, photography and graphic arts.
