Today's Daily Herald features a front-page profile of North Central College interactive media studies major Nick Penev, who was unanimously selected by Texas-based Rooster Teeth Productions as the winner of the “Red vs. Blue” season 9 music video contest among 260 entries nationwide.

The video features Penev in the starring role and more than 20 other people, mostly North Central students.

Professor Stephen Renk, who coordinates the interactive media program, tells the Daily Herald that Penev has a very well-rounded set of talents.

“As a freshman, he was much more skilled than the average freshman in filmmaking. He understands what it takes to make a film. He knows how to edit, he knows how to make a shot,” Renk said. “For us not being a film school, he's doing tremendously.”
