What is amazing about [HPU] receiving this award is
that of the more than 11,000 entries, all were created by
professionals, said Mark Nitta, communication video
lab manager at HPU.
There wasnt a student category, he added, explaining
that getting such recognition on a professional level says
a lot about the students in our visual communication program.
Nitta oversaw technical aspects of the video project for HPU
communication instructor Jacqueline Langley. Langley says,
Video production is an extremely competitive field and
our students have proven they can compete.
The HPU students responsible for the project are Sachiyo
Hartanto, Fredrik Larsson, Eli Lloyd, Robert Midkiff, Jr.,
David Tintle, and Stefani Wan.
I feel incredibly honored, said Larsson. It
feels great that my fellow students and I get recognized in
such a flattering way.
