Interdisciplinary Research Projects for Visual Effects

Proposal Type

Event

Keywords

Subject Area

English/Communications

Description/Abstract

My research and creative activities center around the creation of projects that generate re-usable digital content, processes, and raw-footage to be used in many of the Film & Digital Media post courses offered at UNG. In addition, I seek out interdisciplinary/service learning projects such as the Spaces and Places collaborative between GIS, History, and Communication, Media & Journalism (CMJ).

The two projects proposed for the UNG Faculty Research Day 2015 are creative, interdisciplinary projects involving students from the UNG Theatre's Stage Combat course and CMJ’s Cinematography course, as well as UNG colleagues. Both projects generated high-resolution, quality, original footage used as raw-footage in two UNG Film & Digital Media courses, as well as examples and resources to demonstrate the process of various digital effects within motion pictures.

A short selection of digital clips showing the stages of the visual effects--in conjunction with support material to illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of the creative works--will be available for use within the event.

Bio

David Smith is an award winning filmmaker, writer and photographer. His work in commercial video production has earned him two corporate top-honor awards from KINKO's and The Bridgestone Group, as well as three Telly Awards for his work with the Tennessee Center for Child Welfare. His recent return to academe (teaching production and post-production at the University of North Georgia) has inspired him to get back to his roots--experimental and narrative filmmaking. His short film, TAKE ONE TABLET was an official selection at the 2011 Macon Film Festival as well as the Rome Film Festival and the West Virginia Filmmakers’ Festival.

Rights

Yes, I own the Rights to the footage and edited works. In fact, the main reason for doing these projects was so I would own the rights and permissions for use within the courses I teach. NOTE: The footage and samples are too large for an upload, and the footage is not available online. I can, obviously, provide
