(Media-Newswire.com) - Pleasantville, NY ( January 4, 2013 ) – Pace University, a NY-based private university, and HooplaHa.com have joined forces to put happiness and creativity into action. The Pace Master’s program in Media, Communications and Visual Arts incorporated HooplaHa, a startup website dedicated to spreading positivity, in their semester’s course load.
Dr. Maria T. Luskay, professor of the Digital Video Field Production course in the Master’s program, advocates for real-world experiences inside the classroom. Based on experiential education and a hands-on approach, students act as a production team to complete a final project. In this particular case, the final project was to create a positive and inspirational video for HooplaHa.com.
Managing Director of HooplaHa™, Rob Hess believes the partnership is the perfect match. “We need content. Why not give these students the opportunity to have their work published and featured on our site? It’s such a thrill for them and exactly in line with our mission,” said Hess.
The HooplaHa Content Team attended the class in the start of the semester to tell students about the mission of HooplaHa.com and what was needed for the final project. In groups of 3-4, students created a final video product and the HooplaHa Content Team chose a winner to be featured on the site.
“We judged the videos based on production value, storytelling, and their ability to deliver a product that fits our goals,” said Stephanie Bousquet, Director of Content. Amare Kone, Olivia Hunter and Yulia Moore were the final winners with their video, Aunt B’s Secret to Happiness. The winning group was inspired to create this video about Aunt B because they felt her contagious spirit and zest for life is a perfect match for HooplaHa.com
