Award Winning Cherry Hill Video Firm Produces Alumni Videos For Rutgers-Camden’s 60th Anniversary Website
CHERRY HILL, NJ – May 11, 2010 – Cherry Hill-based Professional Podcasts LLC, the award-winning video and multimedia production subsidiary of Lubetkin Communications LLC, is producing a series of short documentary video podcasts, or “vidcasts,” to commemorate the campus’ 60th anniversary.
Professional Podcasts has completed two vidcasts in the “Scarlet Memories” series. The programs focus on alumni of Rutgers University’s Camden Campus reflecting on their Rutgers experiences. The videos can be accessed through a special Rutgers-Camden web page, (http://60years.camden.rutgers.edu/scarletmemories.html). Several additional videos are planned in the series.
Rutgers Video – Cal Maradonna
One vidcast features Cal Maradonna, retired dean of students at the Camden campus, who entered college as a freshman at the school in 1968 and remained on campus as a professor and administrator for the next 40 years. In his video recollections, Maradonna also describes creating many unique Rutgers-Camden souvenirs, including a commemorative bottle of Coca-Cola for the campus’ 50th anniversary, Rutgers cookies, walnuts, and other items. The Maradonna video is also available through YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7o9OJ0mJvgk.
Rutgers Video – Beth Wirchansky
The second video profiles Beth Wirchansky, a 2009 Master of Science graduate of the Camden Campus. Wirchansky, who is working in cancer DNA research at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, was part of a biology department research team at Rutgers Camden that identified a previously uncategorized species of ground leech found in Alloway Township, NJ. Wirchansky’s video is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csc4aZ5Mtik.
“We are pleased to be working with Rutgers Camden to produce this video series,” said Steve Lubetkin, managing partner of Professional Podcasts and principal videographer for the Rutgers Camden documentaries. “Video podcasts are an increasingly valuable communications tool for organizations that want to explain their missions and tell interesting stories about how people in their organizations value their relationship with the organization. Videos help organizations like Rutgers Camden connect with audiences that increasingly are seeking information online. You simply can’t establish this kind of audience engagement through printed materials alone.”
