Pathways: City Tech - CUNY
This CUNY Documentary short was the result of a project launched by the Office of Assessment and Institutional Research at NYCCT-CUNY. The original idea was to communicate City Tech strengths identified on the Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory in an innovative way -- by the students to the students. In Fall 2014, we launched a project entitled "Communicating Data through the Arts." The project began with a pitch competition with the College's COMD and ENT students. The winning pitch was taken to City College's Film Production department to the graduate program and a master's student (Thanh Hoang and her team) used the pitch as a framework for the film, which evolved to a documentary short that shadows 3 CUNY students.
Throughout the entire process, Tony Award Winning and Oscar-Nominated film director, Stephen Daldry, mentored the CUNY students through this interdisciplinary student developed project.
