SJSU Student Wins National Award In Music

San Josť State University film student Greg Jain [95136] recently received second place in the music category of the 22nd Annual Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Foundation College Television Awards. Jain won the award for his dramatic musical piece "Egress," which is based upon a 1939 song written about a man who commits suicide.

The College Television Awards, a national contest accepting entries from scores of colleges and universities, recognizes excellence in college student film/video productions. First place winners receive $2,000 plus $2,000 in film stock, while second place winners receive $1,000 plus $1,000 in film stock. In addition, the first and second place winners from each category are flown to Los Angeles for the gala awards ceremony in March. The ceremony is considered the highlight of the entire competition and is attended by both celebrities and producers alike.

Jain will be using the prize money to fund his next project in conjunction with KSJS radio and the Valley Transportation Authority, which will be shot locally sometime this spring.
