San Jose State University Professor Wins Joey Honor for Second Consecutive Year

Babak Sarrafan, professor of television, radio, film and theatre at San Josť State University, has won the Award of Excellence at the 2000 Joey competition for directing and producing the music video "Skintight," performed by The Donnas. Sarrafan was also honored in last year's Joey competition.

Sarrafan's music video has aired on MTV, VH1, and many other music video networks and Web site outlets internationally. It won the pick of the week from Rolling Stone magazine's Web site earlier this year, and was also showcased in the 2000 South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas.

Produced by the San Josť Convention and Visitors Bureau's Film and Video Marketing Department, the Joey competition honors individual, corporate and collaborative efforts in film and video in 46 different categories. It is the largest media awards event of its kind in Northern California. The awards cover all aspects of media production and include categories for video, print, electronic and individual achievements.
