UC's Production Master Class Documents Expedition Alaska 2015


Earlier this summer, the University of Cincinnati?'s Production Master Class traveled to the wilderness of Alaska to document Expedition Alaska 2015, a 350-mile, seven day non-stop adventure race. Joining us to discuss the Production Master Class and share the experiences they had in Alaska are Kevin Burke, UC College-Conservatory of Music professor of Electronic Media; independent documentary filmmaker Brian J. Leitten, a CCM E-Media alumnus and director of production at VEVO;  and two of the students who worked documenting the Expedition Alaska Race, Danielle ?Dani? Kokochak, a senior Communications major in the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences; and Nelson Mustain, a senior Electronic Media major at UC? College-Conservatory of Music.
