New work and thoughts from the department of Digital Media


Visual Effects, meet the Catwalk

DM Department @ September 27, 2011

The Visual Effects Project I class traveled across campus last week to the fiber department in the spirit of collaboration. On September 15th Richard Welnowski introduced his students to fiber faculty member Alison Heryer, an acclaimed costume designer for cinema and theater. Her students shared costume themes ranging from Peacock Themed Showgirl to Traditional African Textiles and Greek Inspired Temptress.

Each digital media student will pair with a student designer and his/her costume. This project also will be in cooperation with two other DM classes, Idea and Concept Visualization and Computer Modeling. A combination of conceptualization, animatics, and background modeling will be employed in this assignment. Each student will create a 30 second HD video featuring their chosen costume – culminating in October 6th presentations.
