Filmmaker and instructor Pat Clark encourages students to think beyond the traditional screen. For his Introduction to Media Practices course, students produced images for projection onto the dome of Fiske Planetarium.
“While the technical training and specialized camera and software tools necessary for this project were an important part of the course, the real challenge was to think outside the traditional frame,” Clark says.
“As the demand for 360-degree content grows, this experience gives students a distinct advantage as media makers. Whether they are working in documentary filmmaking, journalism, art or any other visual medium, they now have a foundation for future creative endeavors.”
