“What I most admire about Kaneesha is her discipline and willingness to help others selflessly,” said Garrett, an assistant professor of communication. “From committing to working 18-hour days of film shoots as a production assistant for fellow student filmmakers to being an active member of UT and Tampa's growing film community, Kaneesha is there to work not just for her own endeavors, but has dedicated her time to help out others, exhibiting her understanding of the collaborative effort of networking.”
Heath is a film and media arts major with a minor in communication. Her accolades include Best Drama and AT&T Contender in 2011 for Breaking Point and an AT&T Golden Mobile Award in 2010 for Contagious, all given by Campus MovieFest.
Her first film using a full crew, Snakes in the Grass, was screened at the 2011 Gasparilla International Film Festival along with films from three other students and two alumni.
"I like to show things that exist in this world that people are blind to, hopefully opening their eyes,” said Heath, who has grown up on military bases around the world, including Japan, Germany and Italy. “I’m not afraid to push the limits when it comes to real-life stories. Perhaps they are notable because they are coming from a college campus where that isn’t expected"
