Hermance Stadium Gets the Thumbs Up as Colosseum Double

You never know what you’re going to see at Oglethorpe. Yesterday I watched the incarnations of Roman gladiators—yes, gladiators—roam around our campus.

Oglethorpe’s Hermance Stadium took the form of Rome’s Colosseum for the filming of a contemporary jazz music video shot by Twelve Media Group, which has Oglethorpe connections.

Dina Marto ’05 is the co-founder and President of Twelve Media Group, an Atlanta-based boutique label and publishing entity which discovers and cultivates creative talent. Dina identified her alma mater as the perfect setting for the production of the music video for the single “State of Mind” by electric violinist Ken Ford, the company’s first signed artist.
