William Penn University Student Film Production Featured on FOX 17 – KDSM


William Penn University’s Division of New Media is proud to share that a student-led film production will debut on FOX 17 – KDSM this weekend. Students in the Division of New Media showcase their video production and filmmaking skills with a tour of small-town attractions in Iowa, a visiting artist, and a new introduction to William Penn University.

The production was co-created by William Penn University students Noah Lindauer and Axel Vazquez with the assistance of New Media Division faculty members, Max Leonida, Film Artist in Residence and Jeff Caplan, Adjunct Professor of Photography and Video Producer. “This is an experience I wanted to give my students, to highlight their incredible work for a larger audience to see,” says Mr. Leonida.

This production will feature a short film written and produced by Noah Lindauer featuring small-town attractions in Iowa, including The American Gothic House in Eldon. This film is completely student made, with New Media Division students serving in a variety of functions, including as hosts and in all aspects of video production. The short film, “Today’s Tomorrow, a William Penn University Story” produced exclusively in Oskaloosa, Iowa by Astarox Productions and directed by Max Leonida will also be included.

The feature will premiere on Sunday, March 20th at 12:00 PM and re-air on Saturday, March 26th at 1:00 PM. William Penn University is grateful to FOX 17 – KDSM for highlighting the work of the New Media Division students and faculty.
