Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) June 30, 2009 — Full Sail University (fullsail.edu (http://www.fullsail.edu)), an award-winning entertainment media institution located near Orlando, FL, is proud to recognize Digital Arts & Design (http://www.fullsail.edu/digital-arts/overview.html) student, Gabriel Haze, for creating a music video for Elizabeth June’s Freedom, which has been chosen as the Film of the Week by mtvU’s Best Film On Campus (bestfilmoncampus.com (http://www.bestfilmoncampus.com)).
After being approached by June to create a music video for her song, Freedom, Haze completed the project in early 2009 and immediately submitted it to mtvU’s Best Film on Campus (BFOC), which welcomes student filmmakers to upload their work on the web in a student filmmaker showcase format. Here, participants are encouraged to create profiles where they have the ability to compete in contests with exciting prizes, network with other filmmakers and industry professionals, and potentially earn the title of “Best Filmmaker on Campus.”
Once selected from within the BFOC to be highlighted as the Film of the Week, Haze’s film received a spotlight on the BestFilmOnCampus.com homepage, and will be featured on mtvU and mtvU.com, and finally, the film will be reviewed by a featured student film critic which will appear in the critic’s college newspaper.
“Full Sail University is proud to celebrate and acknowledge this tremendous achievement made by one of our students,” said Eric Rosenfeld, Department Manager Digital Arts & Design (http://www.fullsail.edu/digital-arts/overview.html). “Our curriculum is built on a foundation consisting of passion for creativity and knowledge of technical skill. It is extremely rewarding when our students use what they have learned in the classroom to succeed in the world.”
In addition to this honor, Freedom has also earned the following achievements: Official Selection of the 2009 15 Minutes of Fame Film Festival, Official Selection of the 2009 Action on Film Festival, and Official Showcase at the Orlando Museum of Art.
