NUAMPS Creates Memory

On May 31, 2006, Joe Levy (Kellogg, ’47) was presented the Kellogg Alumni Master Entrepreneur Award for his support of entrepreneurial practice at Kellogg. Levy, chairman of Levy Venture Management, car dealership entrepreneur, and a founding director of Computer Discount Warehouse, has clearly illustrated his commitment to the entrepreneurial spirit by facilitating a long-running weekly meeting of entrepreneurs as well as through his contributions to Kellogg. Levy has played a major role in Kellogg’s development with gifts such as the endowment for the Joseph and Carole Levy Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship chair.

NUAMPS helped celebrate the event with a twelve-minute documentary tribute to Mr. Levy’s accomplishments as emotionally narrated by those who know him well. Kellogg faculty, staff, and alumni joined with fellow entrepreneurs in expressing their admiration in Levy’s strong principals and compassion.

Scott Whitaker, Associate Director of the Larry and Carol Levy Institute for Entrepreneurial Practice, brought the idea of the Joe Levy tribute documentary to NUAMPS for a professional, artistic approach to the promotional piece. NUAMPS’ experience with documentary works such as Art Seymour | Solo Performance and their artful look at special events such as the Ed Paschke Memorial Service demonstrate the group’s ability to create promotional content that is comparable to that of commercial media producers while maintaining a focus on the needs of the educational community.

In the end, it is the goal of NUAMPS to produce works that are both informative and emotionally engaging. As one audience member stated, “you created a beautiful memory for us all.”
