Two projects for an Anderson University Department of Communication Arts class will be featured on WFYI-TV's local program series, “The Art of the Matter."

“Huntington Theatre” was created in Mark Dawson's advanced video production class in the fall of 2013 and will be featured on Tuesday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. on WFYI-TV’s digital broadcast channel 20.1.

The "Huntington Theatre" short features the many transformations in the theatre's 100 year history, the newest being two New Yorkers pursuing their passion of theatre. Rich Najuch and Joel Froomkin try to turn this once adored theatre and movie house into a unique dinner and a show experience.

The short features the work of the following AU students: Dahee Chung (Producer), Hilary Holt (Director), Ye Hoon Lee (Cinematographer), Samantha Garcia (Editor), and Alan Kungu Mbathi (Sound Mixer & Assistant Editor).

Another documentary short “Rotary Jail Musuem” will be broadcast at a later date still to be determined. In the small town of Crawfordsville Ind., lies a building full of history. The Crawfordsville Rotary Jail was the first of its kind. Holding up to thirty two prisoners this jail rotated on a railroad turntable allowing for minimal contact between jailor and prisoner. The jail, now museum, has added a lot to the town and is a place full of history. It is worth a stop on any road trip through the area.

"Rotary Jail Museum" features the work of the following AU students: Nina Munroe (Producer), Priscilla Gipson (Director), James Schuberth (Cinematographer), Kaylee McDougall (Editor), and Ethan Wells (Sound Mixer & Assistant Editor).
