PMC would like a student media org to create two ~1-minute preview videos of the  Oski  nominees to be played at the Oskis Award Ceremony right before they announce best overall publication and best film / video. (Imagine something similar to the preview video they play to recap Best Picture Nominees at the Oscars). The org will be paid $400. For more info, please look at our Request for Proposals.

Spandi is our 3rd-year PMC Supervisor, and she has a lot on her plate. She is a  Double Major in Development Studies and Media Studies, and she minors in Global Poverty and Practice. She also has a Certificate in Technology Entrepreneurship. She likes travelling, playing the piano, boxing, and going to music festivals.
