The Madison Media Professionals Scholarship
Congratulations to Alex Page our 2023 Scholarship Recipient!
We awarded the MMP 2023 Scholarship to Alex Page at the WAVE Awards on November 8th at Lussier Heritage Center. Here is a little about Alex and why we think he is very deserving of this award.
Alex is a UW Madison Student in the Bachelor of Arts Program, Majoring in Communication Arts for Radio, Television and Film. He also holds certificates in Entrepreneurship, Digital Studies, and Cinematography. Alex will be graduating this December.
In addition to being a full time student, Alex works tirelessly to create work that expands his skills and fosters ongoing growth. He has created rich content for Warm Belly Farms, including developing new social media strategies.
This past summer he worked as a Videographer for Cheley Colorado Camps in the Rocky Mountains. Through his creativity, he was able to reflect the unique camper experience and the adventure opportunities through engaging promotional videos.
Alex won the Road to Nationals Video Competition in 2022 and 2023 for USAT Collegiate Triathlon Nationals. He worked very closely with the Wisconsin Triathlon Team to capture their spirit filled journey as they trained for Nationals.
A true passion for Alex is his drone work. He’s created promotional content with Refugio Los Volcanes Resort in Bolivia, Estes Park Colorado and San Francisco. Alex also created the short film Wild Ice, which blew the judges away. It’s a documentary about a figure skater who takes on the dangerous sport of skating on lakes and the footage and story is phenomenal. Be sure to check that film out! He continues to develop his production and editing techniques with each unique project and it shows. His work is exceptional!
Alex enjoys volunteering at many sporting events and races including UW Volleyball and Basketball events. His goal after graduation is to work in digital media with a focus on internet and social media. It’s incredible that Alex has done all this amazing work in the industry while pursuing his education. His projects are extremely high caliber and we can’t wait to see what he will do next!
