Cayuga Student Videos Reach National Finals

DATE: 09-10-2004

Two teams of students from Cayuga Community College have been named finalists in the Best Music Video category, in the Collegiate Broadcasters 2004 awards program. The teams had submitted their entries to the annual National Student Production Awards competition last spring, to be judged by professionals from around the country during the summer.

According to Steve Keeler, director of electronic media programs at the college, Cayuga is the only community college ever to reach the program's finals. The college has now done so twice, with finalists also named in 2002.

Both of the 2004 Cayuga entries were produced by students in Keeler's TV Production II class. “Color Blind” was created by Brian Chalupnicki, Caleb Kerlin and Dave Marks. “Trouble” was created by Veronica Beverley, Ken Bonnie, Pete Cramer and Adam Hogan.

The annual awards contest typically attracts students from such noted film and television schools as Ithaca College, Emerson College and New York University. Top award winners for the 2004 competition will be announced November 5 at the National College Media Convention in Nashville.
