Spearheaded by a broadcasting and media production course, a group of Westminster College students researched, planned and pitched documentaries and produced preview trailers.

Upon production, a panel of judges voted and approved each of them to move forward with production into next semester. Five students will take their proposed documentary and expand their story to create a short digital film, capturing the full scope of each story.

Funding has been provided through the Drinko Center for Experiential Learning and through independent fundraising.

Completed films will be available for viewing on December 3 at the 2016 Westminster Documentary Showcase. Learn more by contacting Brad Weaver, lecturer of broadcasting and media production, at weaverbl@westminster.edu.
