Welcome to the new Digital Design Class, our lovely DD27s, and also welcome to the new class of Entertainment Business Management – the wonderful EBM20s!
The Entertainment Business Management department has now moved in with Digital Design, in what looks to be a great partnership of Producers and Designers.
And today, to seal this new relationship, both the Digital Design students and the Entertainment Business Management students were creating Motion Machines.
The Entertainment Business Management program at VFS produces an online entertainment news show called The Blast Light that profiles fascinating work and people. Digital Design alumnus, Scott Strathern, is the subject of their most recent edition. In the segment, he talks about the production of his graduate project, Motto, and how it helped land him a job, several days prior to graduation, at the award-winning agency, Engine Digital.
‘The Little Mermaid‘, one of the chapters of the fourth edition of the VFS Entertainment Business Management driven Compendium project, has been selected for screening at Screamfest LA (The Sundance of Horror). This is exciting news for the team of students and faculty from the various programs at VFS who poured their passion and craft into the making of this chilling and beautiful adaptation of the Hans Christian Anderson tale by the same name.
Digital Design graduate Kim Oxlund‘s work on the haunting score and eerie 3D & visual effects recently garnered him the Impact Award for Technical Achievement.
Three times a year students, staff, and industry guests gather to celebrate the incredible work being done throughout the various programs at the school. Having your work selected as a nominee for the VFS Impact Awards is an incredible distinction. For the 2011 Fall VFS ‘Circus’ Impact Awards several Digital Design projects have been nominated.
These include Luis Francisco’s interactive children’s book for the iPad called ‘Suuz’ (Suuz Case Study video) in the category of Zero to Sixty and ‘Brainstreams BRAINFO‘ a complete marketing campaign bringing awareness to the issues surrounding brain injuries created by the team of Gary Sylvester, Matthew Dale, Erman Dumlu, Ryan Hoback & Leon Wang in the category of Public Enlightenment. Stuart Ward’s experimental projection mapping project from midway through the program called ‘Kill your Television’ received a deserving nod in the category of More Than The Sum of Its Parts and the team of Julian Ablaza, Amie Bennett and Ronald Dario picked up a nomination for Mission Impossible for their unprecedented thirteen minute long documentary on Transhumanism.
