On the cutting edge of film: BTV’s latest projects prove to be most professional yet

Arun Narayanan ’10 is one tired guy. He’s been up since 4 a.m. editing a short film for IndieLouie, a 48-hour film challenge, and now that he’s started, there’s no turning back. Sure, the clock in the Brandeis Television office and his body are telling him to go to bed, but his inner man on […]

Farewell act: Senior Leonard Bernstein Scholars bid goodbye to Brandeis

I walked into Slosberg Music Center last Sunday, and the distant sound of chamber music hit my ears. The doors to the auditorium were shut, and the hall was empty except for the greeters. Uh-oh.
