prof-macmillins-class-wpbt2-premierKate MacMillin’s Multimedia Production I and Writing for TV students were in for a treat last semester when, instead of following the typical curriculum for these classes, they were told they would be producing mini-documentaries about sea level rise issues affecting South Florida. Originally, the students’ mini-documentaries, some of them 3- to 5-minutes long, were produced as part the class requirement. Now, most of them will be featured as part of a 30-minute documentary that will air on prime time in April on WPBT2 (Ch. 2), the local PBS affiliate. They will also be uploaded to the channel’s YouTube account as a special series, “Sea Level Rise Impact: An FIU/SJMC Series,” in mid-February. More information >>
