Florida International University student-produced film examines dangers of rising sea levels

Video production students in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Florida International University in Miami recently presented the student-produced film, "South Florida’s Rising Seas: Impact," Adrian Herrera reports for Florida International University Student Media. The 33 students spent two semesters interviewing "engineers, environmentalists, real estate professionals and civic leaders to spread awareness of the dangers of sea level rise and how it will affect South Florida."

Assistant professor Katie MacMillin, who served as executive producer on the project, told Carolyn Holtzman of the Miami Herald, "They dove into the research and production as if their lives depended on it. The range of talent and commitment among these students is humbling.” (YouTube video)
