Students Enter Chicago Auto Show Video Achievement Awards

Loyola students were busy at Media Day and among the crowds filming at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show for their first multimedia commercial production class assignment. The project is for an Advertising/Public Relations Special Topics course, which teaches students how to develop, edit and finish multimedia commercials.

This is the second semester that this multimedia production course has been taught in the School of Communication. Under the guidance of Assistant Professor Pamela Morris and video production Instructor John Goheen, students in the past have created videos for the Super Bowl.

This year’s task was to produce a video that would get people interested in attending the Chicago Auto Show. Students worked in teams to create 4-5 minute videos. Each highlighted the international event in unique and creative ways with stories of love, home, kids and humor.

The Chicago Auto Show selected a winner based on quality and social media fans and views. The winner: Reel Dreamz Productions (Steven Abriani, Olivia Adamovich, Grace Heidig)–"Love at the Auto Show" was announced February 15. The video was one of the four submitted by the class.
