“IT Baby” Receives Communication Award
December 10, 2015
Information Technology’s video, “IT Baby”, which introduces the IT Service Desk, was recently awarded a Communication Award by ACM’s Special Interest Group on University and College Computing Services (SIGUCCS). The Best Of award in the Student Created Materials category was awarded at the SIGUCCS annual conference in St. Petersburg Florida on November 11th and the video was played for conference attendees.
“IT Baby” was written, directed, produced and starred in by Bennett Ramierez ’15, with minor production assistance by Justin Counts. The video spoofs Vanilla Ice’s “Ice, Ice Baby” and promotes the services available at the IT Service Desk. It premiered at the Service Desk grand opening last spring and was shown to all incoming students during New Student Orientation. According to Lisa Brown of University of Rochester and SIGUCCS Communications Awards Chair, “The judges thought this was a very funny video with clever lyrics. There was a great combination of being both informative and entertaining.”
