  • Heather Winchell '14 has won the Chronicle of Higher Education, Arts & Academe's first monthly film contest. Her animation, Unpredictable, was completed as a final project during her Electronic Media and Culture class in fall 2010. The judges said they "find Unpredictable the coolest, quirkiest, and most ... unpredictable" of the films entered. "We like the way the stuttery soundtrack matches the jerky animation, the fine use of stop motion, and the humor of the ‘story,' too."
