MAB VIDEO AWARD PRESENTED BY
/// AMELIA BERG — Student ROBERT ALEXANDER — Student A 13-minute-long video created by two Adrian College students took first place in the mini-documentary category of the 2017 Michigan Association of Broadcasters Student Broadcast Awards. Students Amelia Berg and Robert Alexander created the film, entitled “Passion Project | AC Edition” for Michael Neal’s Digital Media Production II (COMM239) course. “Our assignment was to take an original video idea and go through the production process from start to finish,” Berg said. “We wanted to do something different and creative, and that is when we came up with the Passion Project.” Over the course of the film, students, staff, faculty and members of the local community candidly discuss what they are passionate about. According to Alexander, “When we set out to interview people on campus, it was our goal to talk to as many as possible — students, faculty and everyone in between. [...] What we came to realize was that no matter who we spoke with, they all spoke with great enthusiasm and joy about what made them truly happy.” The fact that this video prevailed over 600 other contest submissions — including those from bigger schools, such as Michigan State University and Central Michigan University — underscores the quality of Adrian College’s Communication Arts program.
“WE CAME UP THIS IDEA BECAUSE WE NOTICED THAT WHEN PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THE THINGS THEY ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT, THEY SEEM TO LIGHT UP.” — Amelia Berg
