CSUN Students Win Two CSU Media Arts Festival Awards

Cal State Northridge Cinema and Television Arts students won two awards at the 12th annual CSU Media Arts Festival, a three-day event held November 8-10 at the Cal State Channel Islands campus highlighting the best works by students in the 23-campus Cal State system.

The 2002 festival featured 179 entries submitted from 16 Cal State campuses for the film, video, and new media competition. Distinguished Cal State professors chose the student finalists, and a panel of media industry judges selected the Rosebud Award-winning works.

CSUN student Richard Benipayo won the Kodak Cinematography Award for his project "Bridge to Heaven," prepared under the guidance of professor Temma Kramer.

The Rosebud Award for TV Program went to CSUN students Brian Rodriguez, Kerry Valentine, Lori Blau, Rudy Perez, Nate Blake and Traci McCorvey for their project, "The 8th Annual International Family Film Festival." That work was prepared under the guidance of professor Karen Kearns.

The "8th Annual International Family Film Festival" is a five-minute TV piece that covered the events of the Santa Clarita International Family Film Festival held March 17-22, 2002.

The students' cameras covered every facet of the festival, from the children's workshops and location scouting tour to the film screenings and the festival awards ceremony. The TV segment was originally produced as the final project for Kearns' CTVA 341 class in spring 2002.
