5 CCSU Film Students To Be Broadcast On NESN

In the Fall of 2017, five Central Connecticut State University Film students produced several new works for NESN’s NEXT PRODUCER.  This annual film competition and television show accepts student-productions from colleges and universities throughout the New England region.

In an unprecedented outcome, the Film Emphasis within CCSU’s Department of Communication is pleased to announce that all five students, who submitted works have been OFFICIALLY SELECTED for NESN’s NEXT PRODUCER.  This semi final round includes a broadcast on the network, introductions to industry professionals such as Tom Werner and Brad Falchuk, as well as a chance to produce for the Red Sox and a job offer at the New England Sports Network.

All four CCSU student-films can be seen the NESN website by clicking the images below.   Season 3 of “NESN Next Producer” will begin airing on the NESN network Saturday, Feb. 17, at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Best of luck to all participants.  Updates to follow.
