The Midcoast Maine community came out Thursday, May 28 to join MMC students and faculty in celebrating the graduation of the Professional Certificate Program’s class of 2009.
Over 220 moviegoers packed the historic Strand Theatre in nearby Rockland to view a range of narrative films completed by students in the their final trimester. Immediately following the screenings, everyone was invited to walk down Main Street for an exhibition of work by photography students at Asymmetrick Arts gallery. The photo programs’ dual disciplines of traditional darkroom and cutting-edge digital processes were well represented.
Several graduates will be staying in Rockport for the summer to join the Workshops team: Kevin Carragher, also an alum of the 7-week Workstudy program, will head-up the Post Production department, Nicole Marie and Kathleen Guill are photography program teaching assistants, and Lee Feller is a technician in the film department.
