Bradley’s Multimedia Program is teaming up with Apple Computer to host the “iBradley2” Film Festival – an opportunity for students to recognize and display their talents in script writing, video filmmaking, editing, and the creative development of story lines.
The entries will be screened February 18, 2006 at 7pm in Neumiller Lecture Hall. Panels of faculty, students, local media professionals, and representatives from Apple will judge the films. Winning projects will be published on Bradley’s website and will be available for Apple’s use on their website. Representatives from Apple will attend the event and display a variety of products. Prizes include iTunes downloads, an iPod shuffle, and the iPod nano.
The Film Festival was introduced last year by Dr. Ray Zarvell, Executive Director for the Center for Student Development and Health Services in cooperation with planning by Scott Quinn as part of MM 450. Their vision was inspired by similar events at Duke and other universities. “There are only a handful of schools doing film festivals on the scale of Duke and Bradley,” said Steve Rambo of Apple.
This year’s festival is sponsored by the Multimedia Program at the Slane College of Communication and Fine Arts, supervised by Ed Lamoureux and James Ferolo, and coordinated by Jake Bland and Joel Raabe.
