Miami videos earn awards


Three video productions created by Miami University staff have been recognized with Communicator Awards.

The Communicator Awards are awarded by a national organization of communication professionals to recognize "individuals and companies in the communications field whose talent and creativity achieves a high standard of excellence and serves as a standard for the industry."

Craig Rouse, coordinator of video development in the department of applied technologies, was producer/editor on all three videos and director on two of them.

Ann Glaser, assistant professor of communication, was co-producer of "What Every Child Needs: A Caring Community," which won an Award of Distinction. The video, for Miami's Institute for Educational Renewal, promotes the concept of family-friendly schools and was a component of a package that is distributed to schools.

A video public service announcement used during broadcasts of Miami athletic events also won an Award of Distinction. The fall 1998 PSA was co-produced by Claire Wagner, associate director, news and public information.

A training tape made for the physical facilities department, "Proper Techniques of Snow Removal," received an honorable mention from the Communicator Awards.

All work is judged solely on its own quality, creativity and resourcefulness. The Communicator Awards are designed to recognize local, regional and independent productions. Only those works that have not aired nationally on a major broadcast network are eligible.
