Meet the Prof: Troy Perkins
The following faculty Q&A was submitted by the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Faculty Advocacy Committee, a committee of the Faculty Senate. Richard Kalinoski, associate theatre professor and resident playwright, wrote the introduction.
I have the distinct pleasure of introducing my good colleague, Troy Perkins, filmmaker, coordinator of the radio-TV-film (RTF) program and associate professor. Troy is an ambitious, industrious and sensitive filmmaker. His short film, “Brothers,” demonstrates a careful artistry, especially in framing and composition. The film evinces the texture, feel and atmosphere surrounding the possible loss of a farm and the way of life that the farm represents.
Troy is a respected teacher of film who instills in his students a love for story — the stories inside the great films he teaches. The University and community are fortunate to have Troy on campus, practicing and teaching the creation of film.
