The award-winning media, journalism and film web series, “Epilogue,” will join about 60 nominees in the 2015 Vancouver Web Fest, the second annual Canadian web festival to be held March 6-8, 2015, at Performance Works theater on Vancouver’s Granville Island.
Released in 2012, the six-episode series was a collaborative effort combining the talents of students, faculty and alumni in MJF, electronic arts, music, communication and theatre and dance, under the primary direction of professors Diana Botsford, Dr. Deborah Larson and Colby Jennings.
When a modern worldwide plague becomes resistant to all cures, time-travelers must seek answers in a legendary 14th century rural French village known for its immunity to the original Bubonic Plague. The team gets more than they’ve bargained for when the inevitable twists of time travel force them into discovering the modern plague’s origins – ending in an unexpected confrontation to prevent humanity’s extinction.
In 2013, “Epilogue” received multiple awards, including:
- The Award of Excellence for Mixed Video from the Broadcast Education Association’s National Festival of Media Arts
