Screen studies student nominated for regional Student Academy Award, hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Submitted by on April 25, 2011 – 7:12 amOne Comment

Unreal City, a film by UM-Dearborn Journalism and Screen Studies’ student Bryan Bykowicz, will represent Region II in the “alternative” category at the 38th Annual Student Academy Awards hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Unreal City is an experimental short film shot entirely in the city of Detroit. Bykowicz produced the film as a class project for his Advanced Media Production course in UM-Dearborn’s Department Language, Culture and Communication.

“This is a tremendous honor for a very deserving and creative young man,” said Jim Gilmore, clinical associate professor in UM-Dearborn’s Journalism and Screen Studies Program.

Bykowicz will screen his film on Thursday, April 29 in the Gene Siskel Film Center at the Art Institute of Chicago, along with other regional winners. Unreal City will then move on to the Academy for the national phase of judging. Winners of the 38th Annual Student Academy Awards will be announced mid-May. Notable past winners of the Student Academy Awards include filmmakers Spike Lee, Trey Parker, John Lasseter and Robert Zemeckis.
