Congratulations Broadcast Media Production Seniors!

On Wednesday, May 6, 2020, our talented Broadcast Media Production Seniors presented their 2020 Senior Video Showcase , streaming live to a wide audience, and under the auspices of Burlington’s Media Factory.

All the films can be seen at Champlain Presents on RETN.

Who is She?

Research indicates that up to one in four women in college experience sexual assault. However the Me Too movement, along with recent news events, have given some hope that there will be more reporting of assault cases and more women who find justice. Lindsay Mulligan, Annabel PIke and Olivia Cefalu interviewed their own friends who are survivors and asked a key question – has anything really changed?

Carving New Paths: A Maori Story

The history of many countries often includes the suppression of native cultures. Julia Leonard and Kevin Kukla went to New Zealand on a study abroad program and part of their education focused on the culture of the native Maori people. The filmmakers introduce viewers to the Maori in their native land but also tell the story of a visit  and special gift to Champlain College.

Order Up

Diners are an American classic. They’re restaurants –  born in the 20th century  – where comfort food and atmosphere give customers a sense of home. Connor Decker, Noah Matson and Jeremy Gabor set out to capture the culture of diners in Vermont – and to explain why they’re so important to so many.

Forget Me Not Vermont

These days, we can download just about any music we want in seconds. So it might seem quaint that music once came to people in a very different way – by the distribution of sheet-music. Travis Washington, Charlie Dalgleish and Luke Rebman tell the story of a prominent collection of sheet music at Champlain College’s library – one that reveals a lot about life in the green mountain state for nearly a century.

Do It Yourself

Nathaniel Hart and Griffin Paul Moran take viewers into the “basement” music scene in Burlington.

Champlain Presents is a series of mini documentaries made by Champlain College seniors in the Broadcast Media Production program. Over the course of the semester, students visit the Media Factory to pitch their projects, share work-in-progress with RETN Executive Director Jess Wilson and receive feedback. Champlain Presents is produced by Associate Professor Keith Oppenheim.
