For her participation within the Jessica Project, Central Connecticut State University Filmmaking Alumnus, Sarah Yacavone received recognition for her “Extraordinary Service” in representing The Disney Company.
Two months ago, the Digital Fim Program at Central Connecticut State University put out a call to congratulate Jessica Courtright on winning her incredible bout with cancer. Former CCSU Film student and graduate, Sarah Yacavone immediately engaged through creating a number of uplifting film clips at Walt Disney World, (where she currently interns). On her day off, Yacavone filmed congratulatory messages with Disney’s characters. These video clips were accompanied by films sent in all across America. The initiative engaged many current Filmmaking students, friends and alumni at Central Connecticut State University, while focusing on the critical issue of pediatric cancer. The below film was presented to the Courtright family on March 6th.
