Film students and faculty in Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications have long been known for their flexibility and adaptability. That’s been especially true during the Coronavirus pandemic, which required everyone to think outside of the box during production.
It’s because of their successes in these efforts that the Park School was again named to Variety magazine’s 2021 Entertainment Impact Report of the Top 50 Film Schools and Instructors from around the world.
In its write-up on the Park School, Variety mentioned the virtual production “What COVID-19 Taught Me,” a docu-series by students in a Nonfiction Production class taught by John Scott, associate professor of media arts. The docu-series, which explored the lives of film students, facilitating creative solutions without their usual technological resources, aired on Syracuse PBS affiliate WCNY in June 2020.
