The Making of Big Moments

The creative concept “Big Moments” was chosen to show viewers what makes UNM a flagship institution. After brainstorming and planning, the 2011 interns selected several "moments" to portray rewarding experiences that students encounter during their time at UNM. This spot captures students engaged in big moments such as an important presentation, a grand discovery or an athlete playing the biggest game of the season. Every aspect of this commercial involves UNM students in one way or another: the film production, the student actors, the music composition -- even the voiceover was a UNM student. The 2011 Institutional Spot is a testimony to the unparalleled student talent at the University of New Mexico!
