CalArts held an interdisciplinary Digital Arts Expo yesterday, featuring innovative work from across the institute. The event was helmed by Ajay Kapur, Director of Music Technology and Associate Dean for Research and Development in Digital Arts.
Our students each make one film per year (and sometimes more!), working extremely hard from initial concept to final render. They create their films individually, often sitting side by side in our computer labs and cubes, supporting each other and giving feedback. Their films are diverse in storytelling and design, and unified by a bold exploration of creativity and imagination.
Starting soon, we’ll feature one film per day, spotlighting each student filmmaker. Meantime, please enjoy all the films:
CalArts student David Braun and Arts Center student Micah Cordy are collaborating on a multimedia interactive project called “The Claytheist” — they’ve got a Kickstarter going on now, with four days left. Check it out!
Mark Andrews, alum of our program, and director of Pixar’s “Brave,” kicked off the school year with a talk, a screening of the film, and a Q&A session. It was as lively and spirited as ever — lots of great discussion about his work and the film! Thanks to Mark for visiting, and we hope to see him back again soon. Thanks as well to Jennifer Dunlap from Pixar.
