FIU Rolls Out “Filmmaking for Good” Curriculum

Dr. Nancy Richmond Leads Students at Florida International University to Bring Filmmaking and Social Responsibility to the Business School

In the fall of 2019, Dr. Nancy Richmond’s Social Media Marketing classes partnered with Jessica Kizorek from Eyes On Your Mission to create videos for causes the students felt passionate about. The students divided up into small teams and created over 16 videos about a variety of causes including the environment, women’s rights, poverty, homelessness, adopting a pet, cancer, mental health, LGBTQ rights, hunger, veterans, animal protection, volunteering with children and more. The best video not only won first place, but garnered the team a $500 prize from EOYM!
