Students present documentaries

Editor’s Note: This post was authored by Lindsey Wotanis, Ph.D., assistant professor of communication arts.

Students in my COMM 418: Electronic Storytelling and Documentary Production class are presenting their final projects at today’s Student Documentary Symposium 9 a.m. – noon in LAC 214. Students worked on the documentary shorts (approximately 10 minutes in length) throughout the spring semester. The juniors and seniors were tasked with conceptualizing and producing a documentary using multimedia techniques and a journalistic approach. Students also organized the symposium in order to share their work with the campus community. If you are unable to attend the symposium, please check out their work using the links below.
