Faculty Member’s Commercial Wins Film Award

Palm Beach Atlantic University Assistant Professor of Cinema/Television Andrew Ray won the Best of Competition Award in the Faculty Videos category at the 2017 Broadcast Education Association Festival of Media Arts for his Diet Coke spec commercial.

Ray directed the commercial last spring with PBA film students serving as the entire crew.

“My students helped me create this commercial from start to finish — from giving me feedback on the story to being excellent on set,” he said. “The students proved once again that PBA has an incredibly strong film program that competes with the top programs in the country.”
