Nineteen Mass Communications students and members of the BU chapter of the National Broadcasting Society (NBS) recently traveled to Atlanta, GA for the annual NBS Convention capturing first place in the Society's prestigious “On-the-Spot” (OTS) competition. The OTS competition provides an opportunity for students to show off writing, performance and production skills. Bloomsburg’s contingent produced an NBS promo on deadline.
You can watch their production on the Bloomsburg NBS Chapter’s YouTube channel. This was the second consecutive year Bloomsburg won this particular competition, which includes submissions from dozens of schools nationwide. This year, NBS leadership was so impressed by the students’ work they may adopt the spot as the organization’s official promotional commercial.
In addition to honing their production skills, the students toured CNN and the set of the television show The Vampire Diaries and networked with students, professors and industry professionals. The mission of NBS is to enhance the development of college students preparing for careers in electronic media industries.
