Ohio University's Collaborative Student Productions with universities in Malaysia and Nashville, Tennessee

During 2012-13 Ohio University's School of Media Arts & Studies completed a pair of collaborative student film projects, one in Nashville,TN, with Tennessee State University, a historically black university over 400 miles away, and the other in Shah Alam, Malaysia, with Universiti Teknologi MARA which is more than 9,000 miles away. The ways in which each of these short narrative projects were produced is very appropriate for the conference theme. Ohio University did indeed forge "New Connections" that were both "Mobile and Global." Portions of the 2 films will be screened and panelists will discuss how they and students from their respective universities worked together on these two 20 minute narratives, one with an all African American cast, the other with an all-Malay cast. The Showcase will include a presentation on how students used Skype, Facebook, and other social media during pre-production to develop scripts, find locations, do casting and raise funds, and will also focus on how these projects addressed cross cultural collaboration and ethnic diversity.
Moderator: Frederick Lewis, Ohio University
Panelists: Habibah Ashari, Ohio University/Universiti Teknologi MARA
