Radio TV Film students at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh received accolades for their productions at three recent competitions.
The College Broadcasters, Incorporated’s National Student Electronic Media Convention in Philadelphia honored UWO’s Titan TV with two awards. The station took first place honors in the category for best station imaging. Adam Steinbach and Char Cocchiola of Titan TV produced the material as part of the station’s transition to high definition.
Titan TV’s drama series “Rosemary Park” also took fourth place in the video category for Best General Entertainment program. The program was created and produced by Megan Lemire.
UWO radio station WRST was honored with two Awards of Excellence in the audio category at the Broadcast Education Association’s fall conference in Columbia, South Carolina. One was for Noah Savoie’s humorous segment exploring why the word ‘moist’ makes people uncomfortable and the other was for Amanda Kinnunen’s documentary about Wisconsin’s supper club tradition. Both segments were produced for the Advanced Radio Production class.
Finally, student filmmaker Andrew Severson’s film “The Devil’s Diamond” was an official selection at the Student Art Festival in Titusville, Florida. His film was shot in the classic ‘noir’ style of the 1940s and was one of 62 finalists from eleven different countries. It had previously been honored as an official selection at the Humphrey Bogart Film Festival.
