Here at Le Moyne, we’re family; students, faculty and staff alike. For this reason, collaborative projects are not uncommon inside and out of the classroom, especially in the Department of Communication and Film Studies. Whether you’re interested in writing that front-page story, announcing the evening news, creating the next greatest Super Bowl TV spot, hosting your very own radio talk show, writing, directing and/or filming an Academy Award-winning film or preparing press releases for one of the most successful organizations in the area, our program is interdisciplinary and largely hands-on. We allow students to learn much more than any textbook might teach and provide the opportunity to create something bigger than simply a pen and paper could hold while at the same time learning from others.
Project Record Paradise is a perfect example of the collaborative environment Le Moyne offers. Michael Streissguth, professor of communication and film studies at Le Moyne, teamed up with students Luke Baker, Scott Pugnetti, Carrie Carpenter and Jay Morgese to produce a comical, yet inspiring documentary about the musical life of record store owner Joe Lee.
