COM/media Blog re-launch - spring 2016

What an amazing spring it's been here in the Communication Studies Department in Leutze Hall. Just a few weeks ago we were freezing and the trees were stark against the grey sky. As of today, April 1st, the whole place is popping with green, springtime energy! You know, of course, that that also means semester projects are kicking into high gear and our video equipment cupboards are often bare - with cameras, mics and lights all in heavy use. Whew! You remember those times - the incredible stress of looming deadlines mixed with the excitement of capturing incredible images and sounds...and sensing them all come together into a new creative project.

With the 2016 version of COM Studies Day in the rearview mirror, we're now in the process of updating our Vimeo channels and are excited about what's going on in the department. Our technology is in great shape and the students are working hard so there's lots to look forward to and to brag about. Look for more regular updates on the COM/media blog in addition to student and faculty projects, and commentary from some of your favorite professors.

Let's kick off the spring with this quick look at UNCW from above. Thanks so much to alum Tom Gale for donating our new Phantom3 drone! This montage is from a recent student drone workshop
