Seniors ready for spotlight

By David Seaman | Echo We want to be loved. We want to be accepted, encouraged and respected by others. Most of all, we--as human beings--want to have a sense of purpose in our lives. These themes interlock in the narrative filmmaking class' four short films. On Saturday, the Media Communication Department ...


Grading the heroes

By David Seaman | Echo According to the Chinese Zodiac, this is the Year of the Goat. But if you went to a movie theater recently or turned on the TV, you can see that it's really the Year of the Superhero. While superhero films have dominated cinemas for the last 15 years, only recently have they begun ...


Spring into summer movies

By David Seaman | Echo This weekend, a superhero team will assemble for a second time to fight a new threat and make lots and lots of money. The month of April concludes with a "Gossip Girl" star playing an immortal falling in love and an Australian farmer searching for his sons after World War I. And ...


"Piano" hits the right notes

By David Seaman | Echo In America, we like our ideals. We like to express what we believe, especially through songs that speak to the heart and soul of the American dream.

An art observed

By David Seaman | Echo Every artist is different. Their experiences, their memories, their thoughts are all their own. The art they create is a description of human life. Artists participate with what they have created. In the process, they become integrated, not distant, observers. "Not Distant Observers" ...


A brilliant sound of mystery

David Seaman | Echo "Brother" (released Feb. 17) isn't your typical worship album. The music doesn't scream from the speakers and doesn't require reciting repetitive lines. Rather, the intricate melodies, mystical lyrics and blending of sounds makes The Brilliance a fresh voice for the Christian music ...


Envisioning the future of film

David Seaman | Echo Tonight at 7 p.m., when the lights dim and the screen shines bright in Rediger Auditorium, young filmmakers will see their hard work and dedication shown for all to see. Shining awards and gift baskets will fill student's hands, congratulations will be showered and perhaps the college ...


Middle of the road

By David Seaman | Echo Let's be honest: there's a lot of junk on TV right now. Busy schedules control us, and enjoying a good television show is a luxury. What we're watching shouldn't be a total waste of time. Here are some returning shows and midseason offerings for February and March that are suitable ...
