The Michigan Media-produced film "Love, Life & Loss" won five Emmy awards at the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' (Michigan Chapter) 39th EMMY®Award Ceremony on June 10. The music documentary features the Michigan Men’s Glee Club performing “Seven Last Words of the Unarmed” by composer Joel Thompson and “Glory” by John Legend and Common from the film Selma. U-M associate director of choirs and associate professor of conducting Eugene Rogers, conductor Joel Thompson, and audio recordist David Lau also won awards for the documentary.
Every year, the University of Michigan produces a certified audited financial statement, which comprises part of an annual report that also includes an overview of U-M’s strategic initiatives. The report had been delivered in the past in digital flipbook format and as a printed piece. Due to limitations in the reach of the printed report, in 2016, the report was “reimagined,” and was delivered as a full custom website to better showcase our accomplishments and increase engagement among a broader audience.
We have used Michigan Creative a few times for various projects, from recording focus groups to creating outwardly facing videos. They are a very flexible and professional team to work with. I had the pleasure of working with multiple members of their team. Everyone was friendly and very knowledgeable about their art. We have been extremely satisfied with all work product they have produced. I would recommend them to anyone within the University looking for creative video solutions to a project.
So many hard-working teams of educators do not receive public recognition for their work, so we are truly fortunate that Caring with Compassion has been selected as a 2014 recipient of the U-M Provost’s Teaching Innovation Prize. My sincere congratulations and gratitude go to each of you as well as to the other contributing Michigan Creative specialists. Feedback from attendees here at the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine meeting has been highly positive.
