OSU College of Forestry Wins Telly Award

The OSU College of Forestry was the recipient of a Silver Telly Award for their recently produced DVD “OSU College of Forestry: Getting the Big Picture”.

The Telly Awards are given every year for the best achievements in local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest film and video productions. The production team was co-led by Debbie Bird McCubbin, the College’s Director of Student Services, and Forestry Media Center Director Jeff Hino. In the recently announced results of the 27th Annual Telly Awards, the forestry DVD received the highest honors for non-broadcast recruitment film/video.

The production team did not want to produce just another careers in forestry documentary. It was decided early on to emphasize the College of Forestry experience as seen through the eyes of students. They are the ideal college “marketers” who send a clear and compelling message to a young audience in their own words.

The DVD cameras followed forestry and natural resource undergraduates as they worked their way through a typical day at OSU: going to classes, taking field trips, studying, working out, eating hamburgers, and just plain having fun. Other DVD features highlighted alums on the job, forestry research, and even a hidden “Easter Egg” an all-professor rock music video. The DVD is packaged in a colorful 26-page booklet that provides expanded “liner notes” about programs and opportunities at the College.

Copies of the DVD are available free of charge through the OSU College of Forestry, (541) 737-1594.
