Spring semester begins Monday at Stephen F. Austin State University, and at many other colleges in the region. Some students have spent their holiday break fine-tuning a film that will premiere in April. SFA music lecturer Herbert Midgley wrote the sci-fi film, “The Rise of the Robots.” He’s currently assisting students in the cinematography program on post-production. He says more than 100 students have had a hand in producing the feature-length film.
Husband and wife videographers based in Fort Worth, Carl and Betsy Crum, are producing a documentary series for Texas PBS stations. “One Square Mile: Texas" will focus on nine miles in Texas to reveal the state's diversity of people and landscapes through first-person stories. Betsy Crum said they’ll traverse the Lone Star State to uncover the stories for the first five episodes in the TV series.
