Some students use the summer break to relax and take a vacation, and some get summer jobs. BFA Film and Video Department senior Derek Dodge did a little bit of both. Dodge is one of five “young travel filmmakers” on the Travel Channel program 5 Takes: Europe, a show where a handful of travelers take video cameras to six European cities to create instant video journals of their experiences. Each filmmaker works with a Eurorail train pass, a $50-a-day budget, a Mini-DV video camera and laptop editing tools to produce a 30-minute film and short video logs, which are posted on the Travel Channel Web site, www.travelchannel.com.
In other video news, Christopher W. Hill (BFA 1999 Film and Video) recently edited the new Sony Pictures Home Entertainment feature Brothers in Arms, just out on DVD.
