California State University, Dominguez Hills alumnus Todd Smaretsky (Class of ’10, B.A., digital media arts,
television option) wasn’t going to enter the 2010 CSU Media Arts Festival film, video and interactive media competition. But now he’s glad he listened to the encouraging words of his professor, Dr. George Vinovich,
coordinator of the Digital Media Arts Program. Smaretsky took home first place in the television category at
the festival’s awards ceremony held at CSU Fullerton on Saturday, Nov. 6, for his PSA, “Letting Go of Anger.” He received a monetary prize of $500 and a Rosebud Award. The DMA program also received $250.
