NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Nine Westminster College broadcast communications majors will present their capstone projects Saturday, Dec. 1, starting at 11:30 a.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater of the McKelvey Campus Center. The program is free to the public.
The documentaries will be showcased at three separate screening sessions:
11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Session I presentations:
Watch the trailer for Carswell's documentary!
Session II presentations:
Watch a sneak peak at Ashley Durham's Over the Rainbow.
Session III presentations:
Dirty Politics: Super Smear Me and the 2012 Presidential Campaign by James McCallion; The Heartbeat of Lawrenceville by Liam Halferty; and A Modern American Dream: The Sammy Story by Jordan Greer.
The broadcast and digital communications capstone course requires the student to research and produce a documentary linked to service learning goals established at the College. The course is split into two semesters. The first semester focuses on the research and production of the projects. The second semester engages students in the production, post-production and presentation and assessment of the documentaries.
Almost all the documentaries will air on WCN in the spring as featured programming. Students will also submit the productions into peer reviewed festivals and competitions, and the students are also required to prepare a broadcast résumé portfolio that includes the senior project as an example of professional quality work.
