On May 7, 2015 EMC rented Nashville’s Belcourt Theater for a screening of a sampling of the best EMC student work of the year. The screening consisted of a one hour and seventeen minute compilation of portions of those works. Now the compilation is available for full viewing as well as each of the twenty-five films sampled in the comp reel.
On May 7 EMC took over Nashville’s Belcourt Theater for its third annual screening of a sampling of the best EMC student work of the year. More than one student commented on how wonderful it was to see the work on the big screen. The one hour and seventeen minute screening presented a sampling of the best video work of the year. Also shown on the big screen was a sampling of the best student photography of the year. An interactive display was also presented with a sampling of interactive media projects on mobile and desktop systems.
Attendance was estimated at somewhere between 250 and 300. Attendees included industry professionals, student and their families, faculty, and alumni. A catered reception immediately followed the event inside the theater and allowed many introductions to be mode.
Video work covered a broad sampling from the department including animation, short films, music videos, documentary films, broadcast journalism, and experimental works.
Photography samples included commercial, studio, artistic, photojournalism, and even a set of 3D photos.
The event is called FIRST LOOK because it is the media industry’s first look at the new talent coming out of MTSU.
The videos from the event will soon be published on Vimeo, and will be announced when available.
