WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Lycoming College will hold a Digital Media Video Annual at the Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport on Tuesday, April 26, from 7:30-9 p.m.
The free, public event will include screenings of short narrative and experimental films by students from Lycoming and Bucknell University, along with "Stage Dive" by Crossing the Frame Productions, a Lycoming student organization dedicated to the creation of videos solely by students, including pre-production, production and post-production.
The inaugural Woodruff Grand Jury Prize will be awarded at the end of the evening to the student who made the best overall film. Tom Woodruff Jr. and his wife, Tami, are both Lycoming graduates. Woodruff, a native of Montoursville, Pa., and member of the Central Pennsylvania Film Office advisory board, garnered an Academy Award for his special effects work on the Meryl Streep film "Death Becomes Her." He also received Academy Award nominations for "Starship Troopers" and "Alien3." In 2010, Woodruff announced plans to direct the feature film "Sideshow" in the Williamsport area, for which he has scouted locations.
