Featuring footage of celebrity presenters including Phil Donahue and James Gandolfini and winning student films, Style Music TV has a segment about the the 21st Annual Dusty Film and Animation Festival and Awards. In the segment, BFA Film Video and Animation Department Chair Reeves Lehmann also gives advice to the graduating students, encouraging them to carry on the sense of artistic community honed in school into the professional world.
A profile of Dusty Award winner Elias Orelup (BFA 2010 Film and Video) was included in the Litchfield County Times. Orelup won the Outstanding Achievement in Sound Award for his work on seven different films, and he speaks with the Times about his mentor, faculty member Christopher Newman, and his new job as a sound engineer on a TV show that highlights microbreweries around the country.
Another graduate of the Department, Karina Correa (BFA 1999 Animation), talks to Pattern Pulp about her recent film Train of Freedom, a documentary about post-war reconciliation in Kosovo presented through a journey in the country’s railway system.
