Professor Jamal Currie and I would like to invite all TBM students, faculty, staff and alumni to a special get-together on Friday, December 2nd. We will use the second floor animation hub and screening room (235B) from 3pm-6pm as a platform to showcase and discuss things such as:
-Equipment in the checkout: Items you might not know we have/special items and their potential for your next project.
-DLSR video shoots: Digital still cameras are becoming a more prevalent tool for video production. Learn why here.
-16mm film: Our newest section in the department with the oldest methods of kinetic technology.
-Motion graphics: The design side of animation.
-Video compression: Vimeo vs. Youtube/HDV vs. DV/imports, exports, codecs, bitrates, and other video data language.
We will also be showing the Criterion film “House” , a Japanese psychedelic comedy/horror in the vein of Evil Dead, in 235B, as a basis for criticism and discussion on narrative, old methods for special effects, and its relevance to cinema today.

Invite your TBM professors and fellow graduates to attend!
If you have any more questions regarding this event, please feel free to talk to Jamal or me at any time. We look forward to spending the afternoon with all of you!
