For my final video project for COMM 240, I co-produced and edited a short video showcasing St. Cloud State University’s multicultural, or simply cultural, center. The center was the result of a 1995 hunger strike coordinated by a student organization, Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA). After student protestors called for more cultural inclusion, SCSU administrators established the cultural center on campus.
Our video was filmed using Panasonic AC 90 camera, tripod and external microphone. My partner and I edited the video using Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Cloud on an iMac computer. “Sky Blue,” the accompanying song composed by George Apsion, was used with permission from Killer Tracks.
Our video can be viewed on YouTube.
