Mission Statement

"College students begin to emerge from being told what is true to finding out for themselves what is truth through critical and philosophical questioning. That is the purpose of Tempestas et Caelum Productions." Cameron Craig's mission is to provide students an outlet for their point of view while discovering the world around them. "Our students connect and reflect. The connection is filming out in the field. The reflection occurs when the team of students and faculty begin editing the footage."
