Student Creativity on Channel 22

Documentaries featured on local TV

Student work from Video Production (MCJL 3393), a course emphasizing original creative expression using video, was featured on Channel 22, the SNU television channel serving the SNU campus, Bethany and Warr Acres.

Each student created a documentary examining a number of topics of local interest. Topics included:

1.) Bus safety and driving procedures at the Bethany Bus Barn by Josh Hart.
2.) SNU campus tour by Parker Hull.
3.) Longboarding in Edmond by Chance Henson.
4.) Video game mania by Rodney Graham.
5.) Life of the resident directors by Carson Lucas.

The documentaries were formatted into Quicktime™ files and played in rotation on Channel 22. Each of the student producers were identified with their work. The documentary was the culminating final project of the Video Production course.

SNU’s Channel 22 will return in the Fall. A variety of programming is scheduled to resume with the return of students in September. Prerecorded musical performances from Cantrell Hall will be cablecast, thanks to a grant from the Kirkpatrick Foundation, and a weekly news program will be cablecast in collaboration with the Broadcast News course offered in the Fall through the Mass Communication Journalism program. Finally, a video/film festival featuring creative video produced by SNU students is being planned through Native Tongues, a student organization committed to cultivating the arts at Southern Nazarene University.

Other projects are currently in development in an effort to fulfill Channel 22’s commitment to Bethany and the SNU community.

Channel 22 is operated by the Department of Speech Communication.
