Alumna Effie Brown (Film and Television BA ’93) discusses the process of making a film and how LMU prepared her to be a producer.
In 2014, Cinema Audio Society (CAS) celebrated its 50th year of excellence in production and post-production sound mixing for film and television. As it approaches its 51st awards dinner, CAS is launching a new Student Recognition Award. The Student Recognition Award is intended to encourage students’ interest in production or post-production sound mixing, and to recognize individual students with exceptional and demonstrated passion for the field.
The CAS Student Recognition Award is a $2,500 award. The selection criteria will focus on the student’s short essays in response to application questions and a professor’s recommendation letter. Five finalists will be selected to participate in an live video chat interview with members of the CAS selection committee, and all five finalists will be invited to attend the 2015 awards dinner as guests of CAS (travel expenses not included), where the Student Recognition Award winner will be announced. Eligibility for the CAS Student Recognition Award is open to any student enrolled in a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree program at an accredited college or university. Students may be pursuing any major (indeed, many current CAS members majored in music, psychology, English, engineering and other fields); but should have a demonstrated interest and some experience in production and/or post-production sound mixing for film and television. Please encourage students who fit the criteria to apply.
Eligibility: Students (graduate or undergraduate) in good standing at a 4-year accredited, degree granting college or university during any school term between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014 are eligible to apply.
