LAS Alum Wins Film Award

Samone Roberts

Samone Roberts, a 2020 Communications B.A. graduate, recently won a Silver Telly Award for the short animated film she made as a student in the Digital Filmmaking Track of the Communication Department. Her film, The Gardener, was made with the assistance of an LAS Student-Faculty Research and Creative Works grant that was awarded to Samone and her mentor, David Nelson, Professor and Chair of Communication. The Gardener was one of only 20 films in the country that won a Silver Telly in the Student Category. Professor Nelson first met Samone when she was in his Freshman Seminar class “Storytelling: From Casablanca to Star Wars”.  She told him then that she would like to make an animated film someday.
