New Athletic Department Video Features Corsair Student-Athletes

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-The UMass Dartmouth Athletic Department today unveiled a new promotional video produced and directed by one of its own.

The video, which runs a little over a minute, features UMass Dartmouth student-athletes and was written and produced by Will McNamara, a Stoughton, MA (Stoughton HS) junior Graphic Design major in the College of Visual Arts. McNamara is also a wide receiver on the Corsair football team.

Working as part of the Athletic Department's student marketing effort, McNamara logged close to 50 hours on the month-long project.

The result is a splashy, visually impactful video spotlighting Corsair student-athletes from several different sports. The video's theme focuses on the John Wooden quote, "The true test of a man's character is what he does when no one is watching."

"I can't say enough about the work of Will McNamara on this project," said UMass Dartmouth Athletic Director Ian Day. "The video is excellent, and in just about a minute it portrays the dedication and hard work of our more than 500 student-athletes on campus. I couldn't be happier with Will's work on the project and we hope to take advantage of his skills with additional video projects in the future."
