William Woods University recently hosted its second Red Carpet Showcase, a celebration of WWU student and alumni films produced by communication majors in the arts division during the 2011-2012 academic year.

The student directors, actors and actresses dressed as if attending the always-glamorous Academy Awards, some with evening gowns and tuxedos.

The program featured fictional short movies starring several members of the William Woods and Fulton communities, as well as documentaries researched across various disciplines. Also presented were radio and television excerpts from WWU’s broadcasting program.

Awards for achievements in performance and technical talents were presented at the end of the night.

Derek McCawley of Ahwatukee Foothills won the C47 Award, which acknowledges the strong work ethic and collaboration demonstrated by the recipient. McCawley is a graduate of Mountain Pointe High School and attended Mesa Community College.

While creating their videos, students had an opportunity to experience life as directors, writers and actors. They worked under deadlines and were in charge of whole crews.
