Frank Sesno (alum, parent, trustee emeritus) worked with the Film and Media Culture department and the program in Environmental Studies to encourage videos for his new website and TV special, Planet Forward. Two student projects appeared on the April 15 PBS broadcast: Leslie Stonebraker’s (‘09.5, FMMC) documentary on Middlebury’s biomass plant, and a collaborative animation about global warming’s impact on Bangladesh from Farhan Ahmed (’09, INTL), Luisa Covaria (’09, FMMC), Ioana Literat (’09, FMMC), and Louis Lobel (‘08.5, SOAN).

Students in Prof. Hope Tucker’s Spring 2009 course, FMMC 0243 Internet Art, created web based projects that invite collaboration and encourage change in the Middlebury community. Jackie Faillace (‘09.5, FMMC) developed greenthegrille.com to measure the carbon footprint of top menu items. Jackie hopes to encourage Grille patrons to order menu items with local ingredients, and the College to increase their support of the local economy by establishing more relationships with VT growers and manufacturers.
