OSU-Tulsa Students Team Up with the Tulsa Drillers to Create ShortShooter Film Festival
TULSA (Feb 16, 2010) – Oklahoma State University-Tulsa and the Tulsa Drillers have teamed up to present the ShortShooter Film Festival, a student video competition to promote the upcoming inaugural season at ONEOK Field. Students from OSU-Tulsa’s Creative Marketing course were challenged by Dr. Tracy Suter, associate professor of marketing in OSU’s Spears School of Business, to create an original video production for the Tulsa Drillers about their move to ONEOK Field, located just south of OSU-Tulsa. “The move to ONEOK Field creates a variety of new entertainment options for Tulsa Drillers’ fans,” Suter said. “We look forward to the work of OSU-Tulsa students being one of those options and a part of that entertainment experience.” The ShortShooter Film Festival is an online Facebook competition that allows the public to choose their favorite of the students’ videos. The winning student group will have their original video featured at a Tulsa Drillers game during opening weekend in April. Facebook users can vote for their favorite video through Feb. 26 at http://tinyurl.com/shortshooter. The video competition is part of the TAS-sel Project, a class project in which Suter challenged his students to co-create, explore and interpret the creative experience. Suter said there are plans to continue the partnership with the Tulsa Drillers and host a second Festival next year.
