The Summer Institute Takes on Ole Miss

Last Updated by Amber White on

On July 23rd MPB’s American Graduate Youth Media Summer Institute journeyed to Oxford to the University of Mississippi.  The students split up into four different groups across Ole Miss’s campus (classrooms, basketball courts, etc.) and finished filming scenes for their upcoming film premieres. 

The students had spent the past week learning about the filming process and shooting scenes around the MPB building.  The students quickly learned that rain or shine, filming must go on!  They faced sporadic bouts of rain and heat before they could wrap up their filming.

After lunch, the students toured the S. Gale Denley Student Media Center which is home to The Daily Mississippian and, Rebel Radio 92.1, News Watch, and The Ole Miss annual.  They got an in-depth look at how the Center’s radio and television shows are produced and streamed to the public.  Afterwards, the students packed up everything and departed from Ole Miss back to MPB after a hard day of work!
