Students Take Top Honors in CSU Media Arts Festival


November 17, 2004 :: 88

Graduate art student Matt Frantz of San Diego and recent radio-TV-film graduate Andrew Kopjak of Dana Point placed first in the music video and TV short-form categories, respectively, during the CSU Media Arts Festival recently held at CSU Channel Islands.

Frantz captured the Rosebud Award for “Billy, Boney, and Ma,” an animated music video that follows a young boy’s strange adventures when he accidentally unearths some bones during a souvenir dig. Kopjak’s “Crossing Borders” took the Rosebud Award for his documentary trailer about the journey of five students traveling through Europe for the first time.

Both Cal State Fullerton students were presented checks for $500; in addition, the university’s Art and Radio-TV-Film departments each received a check for $250. This year’s festival drew a record 210 entries from students throughout the CSU system. The 31 finalists were selected by faculty members. Industry professionals comprised the jury and named the winners.

The Media Arts Festival was established in 1991 to give talented students studying film, video and interactive media within the 23-campus CSU system an opportunity to present their work for critical review. In 2000, the festival was expanded to help students make the successful transition from producing their works in college classes to working in actual film and television industries.
