HAMMOND | A Purdue University Calumet senior communication student and Highland resident recently earned a bronze Telly Award for a music video he produced.

Patrick Theobald’s award-winning video, titled “Run,” is named after a song by the Snow Patrol he used in his production.

“Patrick’s effort and talent bring honor to our department and broadcasting program,” Purdue Calumet Associate Professor of Communication Mary Beth O’Connor said. “The Telly is one of the most competitive video production awards our broadcasting students can earn.”

For his part, Theobald said he is proud to be part of a Purdue Calumet program that provides students the opportunities to be creative and develop skills to excel past course requirements.

“I think this award is a testament of how far I have come in the COM (communication) program at Purdue Calumet,” he said “Going into making the video, I had set a goal of making the best piece of work I could, and I am honored to have earned this Telly. I am really excited about my future opportunities resulting from this award.”

Approximately 20 percent of some l1,000 applicants from the United States and five other nations that entered the contest this year received a bronze Telly statuette and certificate.

Theobald also submitted his video as a project for his COM 441 Advanced TV Production class, taught by Instructor Ken Bronowski. The video can be viewed on youtube at youtube.com/watch?v=-cLZQnMfJqY&feature=youtu.be.

The Silver Telly Council of the 34th Annual Telly Awards sponsored the 2013 competition. The competition recognizes the best in film and video productions, online video and regional productions.
