Have a passion for video? Want to see where professional education can take your creative and technical skills? Curious about what New England Tech students are producing? Then check out the latest and greatest student videos at this year’s Backfocus exhibition on May 17, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. in the Hall of Fame Room.
Backfocus is an annual showcase of outstanding video work from students in New England Institute of Technology’s Digital Media Production (DMP) program. Pieces shown in the exhibition are selected by faculty from more than 40 media-focused classes. This year’s exhibition will include music videos, short documentary subjects, video poems, promotional pieces, advertisements, radio and podcast content and animated films.
“Many things stand out about this year’s work,” says Sally Kingsbury, the creator of Backfocus. “We have some great storytelling examples, both sound and picture, as well as a high degree of technical artistry.”
At the heart of our Backfocus showcase is the developing artistry and voice of our DMP students. Viewing the show, you’ll be able to see the progression from novice to professional digital producer manifest itself in the work. “One of the things that faculty try to emphasize is not only the excellent visual imagery that students have the ability to produce, but also what story their projects are telling,” says Professor Matt Morin. “In the end, as technically savvy as our students are, we are ultimately training visual storytellers, and I think this year’s Backfocus proves that.”
Stop by, grab a slice of pizza, and enjoy the showcase!
