UW Digital Media is hosting a series of lunchtime discussions on digital media production and storytelling. To borrow an old movie line – Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas any more. The digital world is changing rapidly, presenting new challenges for communicators every day. Many of us have questions about video production, editing and distribution. We’ll bring experts to a casual atmosphere to answer your questions, provide examples of current work around campus, and share the current trends in digital media. The meetings are free, and will be held in Chemistry 102, right next to Drumheller Fountain, from 12:00 – 1:30pm. Feel free to bring your lunch.
Here is a lineup of dates and tentative topics. The dates are set, but the topics can be adjusted to the needs of the crowd, so feel free to email me your suggestions.
