MSU professor receives another KHC grant for video project

Jeffery HillThe “Video Vault-Kentucky Edition” program has been a long-time labor of love for MSU Professor of Mass Communication Jeffrey Hill. Now, he gets to bring it to a close thanks to receiving a prestigious state grant.

Hill was recently awarded a Kentucky Humanities Council grant. This will allow him to complete his seventh and final season of “Video Vault-Kentucky Edition,” a program that shows classic Hollywood films with a Kentucky connection through writers, producers, directors and actors, among others. In addition to current and former students working on the show, Dr. Mark Graves, professor of English at MSU, will assist in writing scripts that allows Hill to discuss each film’s historical significance and its connection to the Bluegrass State. If time allows, a TV show from the 1950s brings the program to a nostalgic end.

“I am so pleased that the Kentucky Humanities Council is supporting this project,” Hill said. “It has been a pleasure documenting the contributions of Kentuckians to film and bringing film history to life for our viewers.”

The program is produced with the support of Morehead State University’s Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the Department of Communication, Media and Languages, the Kentucky Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Kentucky Humanities Council.  

Previous seasons of the program are rebroadcast every Sunday night at 8 p.m. on KETKY. The seventh season will premiere in the summer of 2019 on KETKY at 8 p.m.
