X-Fest video wins Broadcast Education Association Award of Excellence

[Video] Corey Byers from the SIUE Department of Mass Communications recently received an award of excellence from the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) for his video on X Fest.

The BEA is the educational branch of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), focusing on the education and training of media professionals. The Award was given as part of their annual Festival of media Arts.

The promotional video titled simply, “X fest” is about the second annual experimental theater festival at SIUE also by the same name. Byers was approached by Peter Cocuzza and Chuck Harper of the Department of Theater and Dance to shoot video. The goal of the video was to get the word out about X Fest and to give potential audiences some idea of what they can expect at X Fest.

“I think people have an idea of what experimental theater is in their mind and they might be scared of that,” Byers explained, “I think it was an interesting subject because there were a lot of different types of performances.”
