Urban Video Project hosts Le Moyne College Young Producers Nite with videos by Le Moyne College students

Wednesday, May 9, at 8:30-11 p.m., Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St. Syracuse, N.Y.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) ... Urban Video Project, in collaboration with Light Work, Everson Museum of Art, and Le Moyne College will present “Le Moyne College Young Producers Nite” on Wednesday, May 9, featuring videos made by students in a Mass Media and Society course taught at Le Moyne College.

Students in professor Michael Streissguth's class, Mass Media and Society (CMM 250), met three times with UVP staff and created short videos specifically for projection by UVP in downtown Syracuse. According to Streissguth, “Many of the students had never produced video, but with a big rush of creativity, they turned in a variety of small productions. After this first step, many of them have gone on to become capable producers.”

Students included in this screening include: Christopher Gariglio, Katie Hart, Elaine Jones, Luke Baker, Ashley Casey, James Vanderpool and Kelsey Gardner.
