Tully Ice Harvest Festival

leave a comment »

The Tully Ice Harvest Festival takes place on Green Lake in Tully, New York once a year. Tully is located an hour from Syracuse, New York. The Ice Harvest Festival provides a way for the people of Tully and surrounding areas to have access to large amounts of ice. Unfortunately, the 2013 Tully Ice Harvest Festival did not take place due to the weather which caused the ice to be too thin to cut. The ice is often used in keeping items cold rather than making things with it. Gordon Howard of Tully, New York provides insight on the harvesting process. The footage and interview was conducted in February of 2009 by Peter Chen.

Tully Ice Harvest Festival

leave a comment »

This video was taken from the annual Ice Harvest Festival in February of 2009 on the Green Lake of Tully, New York, which is about an hour south of Syracuse. The festival originally started with Ice Farmers that moved to Tully to find work. They would come from all over the world just to harvest the ice found here.

The video, narrated by Gordon Howard, a volunteer at the festival, shows the process of the harvest of the ice; from the clearing of the snow, to the scoring into 18-inch square blocks, to the transporting via horse-drawn carriages to the ice house.

Howard proceeds to discuss the history and economical impact that the festival has on the town, along with the importance of the help of the townspeople and invites any and everyone to come out and attend.

leave a comment »

 

This is an example of multimedia storytelling through video news story. On Saturday, April 13, I ventured down to Main Street in downtown Hattiesburg where South City Records, an independent student-run music label, held its first music festival. The festival was a free event and was open to the public. The music started at 4pm and included artists K. Juan, Roundhouse Groove, The Drew Young Band, Pell, Cardinal Sons and Oh, Jeremiah. The festival, coinciding with the Art Walk, brought out a large crowd of all ages.

The 2013 Children’s Book Festival at the University of Southern Mississippi took place April 10-12th. It is an annual book festival that is open to all Children Librarians and Teachers.

This year librarians and teachers visited booths of various authors and attended several presentations put on by accredited children’s authors, one author being, K F Ridley, bestselling author of “The C Walker Adventures” series.

The Half Asian author talked briefly to me about her first experience being involved in the Children’s Book Festival, her publishing company, and her new book.

In Ridley’s presentation she talks to the audience about her childhood. She was abused everyday by her father. She was a misfit and the only Asian student all throughout grade school. She revealed her pain and her plans to create Fantasy stories to escape her harsh reality.

First Annual South City Records Music Festival (Video Assignment)

leave a comment »

South City Records organized its first music festival in downtown Hattiesburg, Miss. The event took place on April 13, 2013. This festival was completely student run, and organized in roughly two months.

South City Records gives the Entertainment Industry students at the University of Southern Mississippi hands-on experience in how to work in a record company. The faculty advisor for South City Records, Drew Young, actually owns his own record label as well, so he tries to model South City Records to work like a real-life record company. This festival gave the students even more experience with how to deal with sponsors, booking bands and locations, and even doing some of the grunt work too.

The students in South City Records worked with such dedication to organize and execute this event. They were so proud of what they had done. The festival managed to attract a decent crowd and everyone seemed to be having a good time. They are anxious and excited to start planning their next event, and I am personally excited to attend it and see how great of a job they do once again.
