Alumni Sam Malan Recieves Award

Sam Malan and his fellow classmates received a Crystal Pillar Award last weekend from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for the film, “Defector,” which they created and produced in Dordt’s Short Film Production class.  The film tells the story of an American and a German defector in World War II.

The film is up for a few more awards this year and will be released after the end of the award season.  You can find a link to the trailer on Defector’s Facebook page.

Sam, one of two cinematographers for the award winning film, got his start in Mr. Sommerer’s Multimedia Applications class learning to produce and edit digital footage.  He is a junior in Dordt College’s Christ-Centered Digital Media Program.
