EMC students capture holiday production, parades

EMC Christmas Parade 4Students in the Department of Electronic Media Communication were extra busy at the end of fall semester with the holiday season in full swing.

On Dec. 3, EMC students captured MTSU’s first production of “Joys of the Season” at Tucker Theater. The production featured music, art, theater and dance from the College of Liberal Arts.

The parade featured festive and impressive floats, performances and, of course, Santa Clause. The students’ work was broadcast to more than 1 million homes in the Middle Tennessee area.

On Dec. 13, a group of 20 student volunteers produced the Murfreesboro Christmas parade live on MT10, the student-run television station. EMC alumnus Nic Dugger (’00), owner of TNDV, a Nashville-based mobile production company, provided an uplink truck as well as seven staff members to mentor students working the event.

The Department of Electronic Media Communication features a 40-foot mobile television production lab, a 3,000-square-foot video and film studio, a full complement of high definition production facilities, a robotic virtual TV studio, video editing suites, digital labs equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software, an animation studio, a student-run TV station, a student-run FM radio station, traditional and digital photography facilities, and more. The Baldwin Photographic Gallery exhibits the work of some of the world’s greatest photographers.
