For the sixth year in a row, Miami University originally-produced videos were recognized at the 2012 Videographer Awards from a pool of over 1,600 U.S. and international entries.
Kirk Hopkins, manager of information technology for housing, dining, recreation and business services, composed, performed and recorded the music for “Orientation Video.” The video received the highest honor, an Award of Excellence, given to just 12 percent of the entries. This video featured 30 Miami students and aired during summer orientation of 2011.

A series of “New ID Card” videos produced by Hopkins received the Award of Distinction, again just 12 percent of the entries honored. The short series was shot on-location at East Quad with the help of Miami students to show first-years how to use the Miami ID.

“It was interesting to see how students took the concepts and ideas that the university wanted to convey and presented them based on their own personal experiences at Miami,” Hopkins said.
The Videographer Awards are some of the most celebrated in the video industry. For 16 years, thousands of production and communication professionals have entered the competition. Winners range from large international production companies to student producers.
