Is the FRIB (Facility for Rare Isotope Beams) rap a bit over your head? Don’t know your ions from your antimatter? Not sure what the FRIB rap is? Perhaps you should take a gander at MSU Today’s award-winning informational segment, which explains the music video. This segment was a recipient of the CINE Golden Eagle Award, and produced by TISM’s very own Troy Hale, with assistance from recent TISM graduate Ryan Hurst. The CINE Golden Eagle Award is an industry-recognized “mark of excellence” bestowed upon outstanding video in different categories.
Also nominated for an Emmy, this Big Ten Network-produced story explores both the making of the rap and its purpose in order to increase interest in and awareness of the FRIB. It educates the public about the facility, which will be built on MSU’s campus in 2013. Isotopes and science may not seem like the most obvious subject for a music video, but there is already a precedent – the famous and adored Large Hadron Rap. Kate McAlpine, an MSU grad, performed both the Large Hadron and FRIB raps.
Troy Hale splits his time between teaching in Telecommunication, Information Studies & Media, and producing shows for the Big Ten Network.Share via these networks:
