Summer Institute For Digital Media Entertainment

Summer Institute For Digital Media Entertainment

WHO: High school and college students, educators, nonprofit
organizations. No prior Digital Media experience is necessary, but
students should be comfortable with computer use.

WHAT: Can take advantage of a summer institute that will let them gain
the skills and access the equipment to complete their own high-quality
digital media projects.

"If you want to produce a short film or extreme sports video, tell a
compelling digital story, create a photo slideshow DVD, animate your
ideas, or produce that audience-wowing multimedia presentation or web
site, this is the place for you!" said Robert Beede, Instructor in
Digital Media for Gavilan College and creator of the Institute. "It is
a rare opportunity for staff and students to investigate both
beginning and advanced topics in Digital Media by working on their own
creative projects. It's perfect for someone who has photos or raw
footage or an idea that they've always been meaning to do something
with, but who needs guidance in how to go about it."

The first two days will feature guests discussing their work in
Digital Photography, Video Games, 2D/3D Animation, Web Design, Extreme
Sports Film/Video, electronic Music, and Design. These presentations
will be free and open to the public. Students who wish to register for
the Institute will then create an individual "flight plan" for their
learning experience.

The Institute is focused on project-based learning and production in a
lab setting where students will have access to instructors, tutors,
on-line video and suggested readings. Attendees may work on their own
projects or structured assignments in digital storytelling, 2D/3D
Animation, Extreme Sports Video, PodCast production, nature/Landscape
Photography, Digital Presentations, Special Effects for Video/Film and
Electronic Music. The lab is state-of-the-art with Macintosh G5
computers, MacBooks, and software including Final cut Pro, Motion and
After Effects, Flash, Photoshop, Logic and Garageband, Dreamweaver,
DVD Studio Pro, SoundTrack Pro, iPhoto, iMovie and Maya for 3D
Animation. Digital Video camcorders and cameras can be checked out for
project use.

WHEN: July 5 through July 27, lab hours are 10 a,m, - 2 p.m., Monday
