A film produced at UMD
The premier of a film produced in the UMD Visualization
and Digital Imaging Lab titled, 50/50: The American Divide
was shown Tuesday, March 20 at the HHH Institute of Public Affairs.
Zackery Swanson, a videographer and young conservative,
and William Payne, a director and middle aged liberal, set out in the
2004 presidential election to find a divided country--the red/blue "reality"
was being hyped by the mainstream media. What they found was an electorate
that was more intelligent, more passionate about the political process
and more reasonably centrist than the media were reporting. The DVD
will be available for distribution in early October.
