UBU proudly announces that a short film created by UBU communication students have qualified to the final round of the advertising film contest hosted by the Office of Insurance Commission (OIC). The contest aims to promote driving comfortably with motor insurance. Out of 121 competing teams, the UBU communication students’ team became 1 of 10 finalists.As part of qualifying to the final round, the team members will have the grand opportunity to attend a special workshop with professional directors who will provide constructive feedback and suggestions to improve their content before final submission of their films. Selected films will be awarded and publicized via www.oic.or.th and Facebook: proic2012 on 15 May 2020.

The short film created by the UBU student team was originally part of the Film Studies Course instructed by Assistant Professor Dr. Surasak Boon-arch, lecturer from the Faculty of Liberal Arts at UBU. The project assignment aimed to help students produce standardized movie content by applying the related concepts and theories learned into the production. In total, 63 students were enrolled in the course and were all assigned to form teams to produce a short film according to their own genres of interest. The seven categories of genres provided were: thriller, horror, fantasy, drama, musical, romance and comedy.  After the completion of their projects, all of the students were to submit their short films tovarious contests such as the Huawei Contest, Monori Contest and the 60 Second Film Festival. As a result, some films have been selected for the final rounds of their competitions, and some unfortunately were not. Nonetheless, the most important things are that the students received a chance to express their creativity and increased their experiences in national film competitions.   

UBU congratulates all of the students on their hard work and are proudly cheering on the students currently in the final rounds of their respective competitions. Let’s go, UBU!
