A film produced and directed by Bill Parker of Hindsight Media for the Boston 48-hour Film Festival. The cast and crew was comprised of a group of awesome folks who work in education and technology, including my BFF Frank Devito. I worked on the screenplay and had a bit role. The rest of the talented crew/cast included Bill’s daughter, Quentin, Lew Warren, Deidre Collins, and Richard Pilcher.
(Yes, Emerson owns a castle in the Netherlands.)
What do a group of students from Emerson decide to do amid finals? A musical act, of course. This is one reason why I LOVE Emerson. Emerson students are innately creative, upbeat, and full of life. I see several of my former students in this video: Renée Deschene, Courtney Tharp, Xandra Fileccia, Jackie Pauley, Mary Quigley and Beth Treffeisen. Great job, guys. One day I hope to teach at the castle!

Below are highlights of the work done by students who participated in the American Indian Journalism Institute in June. We worked long hours for 10 straight days, but it was fun. It was amazing to watch how quickly these energetic budding journalists took to creating video packages.
