Winner of a student Emmy award
The prestigious student Emmy for Outstanding Achievement in Student (Non-News) Production went to students (see above) in Professor Sandy Cannon-Brown’s Environmental and Wildlife Filmmaking class for their documentary, EcoViews: Life on the Chesapeake Bay. The award also acknowledged the outstanding work of several students in Brigid Maher’s and Catherine Eunice’s motion graphics classes for the interstitials selected for the program.
EcoViews: Life on the Chesapeake Bay aired on Maryland Public Television as part of Chesapeake Bay Week in April. Many other public broadcasting stations also aired the program. The documentary tells four stories about people and communities affected by the health of the Bay.
Environmental and Wildlife Filmmaking, COMM-568, will be offered again in the 2011 Spring semester. The course is an initiative of the Center for Environmental Filmmaking.
