Charles E. Richard directs the Center for Moving Image Arts, a new interdisciplinary institution at UL designed to facilitate faculty and student collaboration across the curriculum in producing new works of research and creative expression in moving image media. "Moving Image Arts" refers broadly to forms of creativity and scholarship that utilize motion pictures, such as drama, documentaries, animations, computer games, interactive media, experimental video, and so forth. Richard coordinates the University's Moving Image Arts Program, a new interdisciplinary major. His work includes over a dozen nationally distributed documentary films, earning recognitions such as "Best Historical Documentary" twice at the New York Independent Film & Video Festival and the prestigious "DuPont Columbia Award," television's equivalent to the Pulitzer Prize. At UL Lafayette, he supervises several collaborative student media projects and works closely with the Center for Louisiana Studies, where he serves as a Fellow with the Center for Cultural and Eco-Tourism. Professor Richard was named University Distinguished Professor for 2014.
