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.
