The course, taught by Filmmaker-in-Residence James de Seve, allowed students to create videos to help local community organizations, such as the YWCA and Community Hospice.

“By merging cinematic skills, emotional storytelling and conveyance of information students were able to maximize the message for the community groups,” said de Seve.
