St. Cloud State was a winner of a 2012 Telly Award for the video entry “Earth Science Here and Abroad” featuring Kate Pound, associate professor of atmospheric and hydrologic sciences. The online commercial highlighted Pound’s core sampling research in Antarctica.
The Multimedia Services department produced the promotional piece, earning an Online Video Bronze award. The University’s video production team, headed by Jim Bertram ’88, producer and director, works with campus clients to plan, direct and produce teaching and promotional videos.
“Earth Science Here and Abroad” focused on Pound’s participation in ANDRILL (ANtarctic geological DRILLing), a deep drilling project undertaken by a multinational group of scientists, educators and students.
“The real excitement for me was translating that science. Finding ways to bring exciting science into the classroom,” Pound said.
