During the Academic Quarter
Series of short documentaries broadcasted for three years (2015-2017) by the Hellenic Parliament Television and entirely created by senior students of the Cultural Technology and Communication Department of the University of the Aegean. Documentaries have the form of portraits and discuss students’ modern culture in Greece. One of the episodes of the 2nd cycle entitled “Training the gaze” received first award during the 3rd Panhellenic Pupils’ and Students’ Historical Documentary Contest in 2016. This was the first time a series of documentaries were ever filmed for a Greek TV channel having a national range by university students and including all specialties (i.e. research, direction, camera, editing, etc). Scientific responsible for the production of the series was Ioannis Skopeteas, Assistant Professor of Direction and Script-writing at the Cultural Technology and Communication Department of the University of the Aegean.
