Mount Media Creates TV Spots

Mount Media, the production agency for media studies students at Mount Saint Mary College, created “Their World, in your Hands,” a series of 30-second video public service announcements featuring students and families from Nora Cronin Presentation Academy.

Parents spoke about life in their country of origin, and the importance of better education for their children.

The spots were prepared at the Mount Saint Mary College television studio and editing lab.

Mount students involved included media production students under the direction of professor Dean Goldberg: Alec Chakery and Peter Chakery, Floral Park, NY; Rachel Sangalli, Brewster, NY; Lauren Parrelli, Beacon, NY; Gregory Jacob, Ridgefield, CT; Theresa Stagl, Kenoza Lake, NY; Margaret Treacy, Monroe, NY; and professor Victor Azuaje’s Spanish language students Nicole Golder, Smithtown, NJ; Monica Guzman, New York, NY; Alissa Keyes, Trumbull, CT; Victoria Lapinski, E. Northport, NY; Susan McCallop, Newburgh, NY; Christine Molina, New Windsor, NY; Liliana Peralta-Zapata, Bronx, NY; and Jefrey Velasquez, Bronx, NY.

One of the Nora Cronin PSAs was screened at Upstate Films, along with another Mount student video, “The Newburgh Armory Unity Center Needs Your Help” by Meghan Darcy of New Windsor, NY, Maureen Tilton of Poughkeepsie, NY, and Russell Pagano of Cedar Grove, NJ.

The rigorous and expanding media studies program at Mount Saint Mary College features a video studio/editing suite with the latest non-linear editing equipment, a Mount Media crew for real world experience, and the KnightRadio station featuring high-tech control room and studio equipment.
