Dave Kelly, director of Advanced Media Production (AMP) at CSULB, and his staff won a Western Access Video Excellence (WAVE) Award for a documentary they produced titled “Panama Canal Expansion: The Battle for Jobs and Cargo.”

The 19-minute historically based film also focuses on the canal’s current construction effort and the potential impact it will have on global trade and shipping routes.The WAVE Awards are sponsored by the Alliance for Community Media (ACM), a national organization of community, educational, and governmental TV producers. Its western region holds an annual conference for participants from six states.

The documentary was initially presented at CSULB’s Center for International Trade and Transportation (CITT) Point/Counterpoint event in 2010, which included a discussion by global trade and logistics experts about the impact of Panama Canal expansion.
