HU professor produces campaign film for area United Way fund-raisers

Dr. Lance Clark, a professor of Huntington University, has produced a film being used in United Way campaigns throughout northeast Indiana.

Clark, professor of digital media arts film and communication, directed the film with help from several former and current Huntington University students including Jim Marbach, Ryan Schnurr (2012), Mike Ayers and Tim Bajema.

It features community members, including HU faculty and adjunct faculty members Jonathan Hicks and André Laird (2004 alum); campus pastor Arthur Wilson (2012 alum); and Clark's daughter, HU senior Tianna Clark. The project also included insights from three area United Way directors and HU alumni Jenna Strick (2006), Pamela Baker Beckford (1976) and Cheryl Pogorelc (2005).

"The film has a great theme this year as it focuses on all the buttons we push in our lives and how we can really make a difference by getting involved in simple and doable ways," Clark said.

The film can be seen online at www.youtube. com/watch?v=vuAPM RNoIjs&feature=youtube_gdata_player.  

The mission of the United Way of Huntington County is to unite the community through visionary leadership, assessment of needs and the mobilization and dispersion of resources to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of Huntington County.
