A video still from Rebekah Modrak's ArtPrize video piece.

The Traverse City Film Festival featured short films by University of Michigan students in the Screen Arts and Cultures department. In addition, a team of videographers documented the festival. Rebecca Call, a junior in Screen Arts and Cultures, worked as the editor for the live web content team. She and her team created the closing night trailer shown at the festival. (See video below)

“I have a passion for filmmaking with a special interest in editing,” said Rebecca, who also works for the Millenium project, and at Duderstadt Center where she edits footage to showcase events at the center.

This summer, Rebecca had an internship with the production office for “AWOL,” a feature film co-written by Jim Burnstein, head of the screenwriting program at U-M’s Screen Arts and Cultures.
