The UConn Department of Digital Media & Design is thrilled to announce that its 2020 DMD Senior Showcase will open online on Monday, April 27, 2020. This virtual group exhibition features the work of senior BFA and select BA students from the Stamford campus and replaces the previously scheduled exhibition in the UConn Stamford Art Gallery which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year we have a cohort of 5 BFA and 5 select BA students-ranging from 2D and 3D animations, interactive narrative and games, and a poster. Participating students: James Campbell-Gibson (Capetown, South Africa), Anthony Cavuoto (New Milford, Conn.), Nolan Didio (Monroe, Conn.), Jeremy Gonzalez (Stamford, Conn.), Julian Kinney (New Rochelle, N.Y.), Tyrrell Serrano (Bridgeport, Conn.), Ryan Story (Stamford, Conn.), Linh Tran (Bridgeport, Conn.), Andrew Zhou (Trumbull, Conn.), and James Zilvitis Jr. (Winsted, Conn.).
The public is invited to watch the completed films and animations in an online screening premiere via YouTube at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 8th, which will also serve as a celebration and virtual reception: http://youtube.com/uconndmd
The DMD faculty and staff wish all the best to all of our graduating seniors! We know your future is bright!
The UConn Digital Media & Design senior exhibitions are the culmination of a year-long senior project. For the BFA senior capstone year, students take six credits of BFA senior project, a professional practices course, and a BFA Senior Exhibition course, which results in a portfolio-ready professional artwork. Students work closely with the BFA Senior Project Advisor, a faculty member they select to mentor them through the process, from pre-production and concept development to final display.
UConn's DMD program provides an innovative and transformative experience that employs the use of industry-leading concepts and technologies to educate students, creating future leaders in design, communications, business, entertainment, and other related industries. Students can study animation, gaming, web design and development, digital media strategies for business, film/video production, and the digital humanities. Under the guidance of faculty who are all experienced professionals and practitioners, students have access to state-of-the-art facilities and engage with leading-edge hardware and software to both produce and measure digital media content for both today-and tomorrow's-brave new digital world.
