Cameron student documentary named an official selection of Trail Dance Film Festival

The Cameron University student documentary “Street Art: More Than Graffiti” has been named as an official selection at the 10th Annual Trail Dance Film Festival in Duncan. The film will be screened on Friday, January 29 at 6:30 p.m. in Chisholm Hall of the Simmons Center.

“It is always a great honor for our student documentary to be selected for the Trail Dance Film Festival,” says Dr. Matt Jenkins, Professor in the Department of Communication. “Our talented students were dedicated to producing a professional caliber documentary, and they succeeded in that goal.”

“Street Art: More than Graffiti” was produced entirely by Cameron University Communication students over eight weeks during the 2015 summer semester. The documentary highlights the difference between graffiti and street art while showcasing the evolution of an art form from underground practice to mainstream acceptance.

The film features local artist David Mills of the Checkered Rose Tattoo shop, Tulsa artist Mark Lewis and other artists from around the country. The class traveled to Flagstaff, Arizona; Seattle, Washington; and Tulsa to interview these artists. Additional interviews were conducted in Lawton and via Skype.
