A trio of videos produced and submitted by Bloomfield College students has been placed among the 20 Finalists of the New York Banking Association and Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s 2014 Savvy Credit Video Festival, in results released by the organizations.

Nine Bloomfield students produced the three short films, with seniors Katherine Medrano, Lawrence Rivers and Chrystopher Davis behind a piece entitled “Double Trouble: Good Credit is the Way to Go”.  Fellow seniors Nadine Richardt, Erika Goudron and Andre Douglas produced the short titled “Credit Oath”, while senior Wildenson Francois, sophomore Aminata Souare and freshman Courtney Foreman created a film dubbed “Credit Class”.

Open to college students from Tri-State-area schools (institutions located in either New York, New Jersey or Connecticut), participants competing in the contest were asked to create and present 30-second videos on how to improve a person’s credit score. Designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn about the value of financial literacy and good credit through creative means, the Festival allows the public to vote for their favorite videos during a four-week online voting period, which ends Feb. 3.  

Winning submissions will be aired across the five boroughs of New York in select local movie theaters, and will receive a team cash prize and tour of the New York Federal Museum and the Gold Vault.

“I am so proud of my students who came through and worked on a video for the Savvy Credit Video Festival,” Associate Professor of Finance and Faculty Advisor Anita Pasmantier said. “It was a pleasure to be the faculty advisor to all the teams of students, and I wish them much luck in the live judging process that concludes in February.”
