To fully explore how media shapes our world, we need to create it, not just consume it.

It’s why we constantly seek out compelling stories in and around our community and capture them in short film projects. And not just in West Texas—in fact, our staff film team has traveled more than 14,000 miles in service to the faithful documentation of stories beyond our backyard. We believe this kind of work is important, and it’s congruent with our mission to inspire students and faculty to share messages that matter with the world.
