University of Central Florida (Tết - Tình Yêu Quanh Ta)
Most Outstanding Multimedia Production Nomination: University of Central Florida
Production name: Tet 2019: Tết – Tình Yêu Quanh Ta
This production focuses on bringing one a new aesthetic and marketing method to our biggest VSA event. The Vietnamese American Student Association at University of Central Florida always has an annual Vietnamese Lunar New Year showcase to celebrate Tết. Every year, we always implement a theme to send message to our audience and make each showcase stand out. This year our theme is Tình Yêu Quanh Ta, which means “Love is All Around Us”. No matter where we are or where we go, love is around us all, whether that be through a significant other, family, friends, pets, or even food. We hope we can showcase that to you all at our event.
Our media team took a step further from previous years and planned out new media and marketing schemes to apply into promoting this event. From profile frames/pictures on Facebook, to promo videos that showcase our officers and our special guests. The vision was to present a new aesthetic in media to help our viewers stay well-informed about our event, while at the same time, stay appealing to the eye and attracts people to attend it.
