Frostburg State University’s Department of Mass Communication is proud to announce that Kelly Courtney’s short film “Haze” was awarded an Honorable Mention award in the Broadcast Education Association’s 2011 Festival of Media Arts. The BEA is the educational arm of the National Association of Broadcasters and their annual festival is highly competitive with entries from colleges around the country.
A mass communication major with a focus in video production, Kelly made “Haze” last semester as a final project for Professor McAlexander’s MCOM 311 Single-camera Production class. After viewing her video, Professor McAlexander suggested that Kelly submit her video to the BEA student video competition. Kelly produced, directed, edited, and composed the music. She was assisted with lighting and electrical by another mass communication major, Jared Ritchey.
“Haze” is a suspenseful twist on the process of death. Mary Ellen Courtney (as herself) and Becca Kmieciak (young Mary) take viewers into an unknown parallel filled with youth and unexpected surprises. After experiencing another routine evening, Mary Ellen wakes up to find herself youthful and in her 20's. This turn of events leads to another surprising discovery.
