NicholasOur very own New Media grad Nick Bruckman presented his new video piece at the UN General Assembly on Thursday, Sept. 26th. The video highlights concerns and Millenium Development Goals, a recent movement to aid children worldwide.

Bruckman’s incorporation of motion graphics to better organize the delivery of the United Nation’s plan. His presentation helps to breakdown their outline to an iPhone savy viewer.

The video’s use of constant motion helps sell the immediacy of the issue as well as controlling the attention of the viewer. Nick’s outline features lines leading to circular transition elements. These elements assist in furthering the concept of world nations following a path and coming together in the end as one powerful force.

If all goes to plan, the UN hopes to provide real change around the world by 2015.

Tim Clark (NME Alum): New Video

By | Old Student Showcase | No Comments

Tim Clark (class of 2010) recently completed this video Recognition.
He writes: “With QR codes becoming so prevalent in our everyday lives they must be reevaluated to determine if they are in fact worth using and engaging with. These strange symbols pull us in with the curiosity of what lies on the other side of the scan. They provide an entrance point to a digitized layer that sits on top of the city. While they extend the interaction with a certain object or service they require one to reach into their pocket to launch the decoder adding extra steps just to understand what one sees in front of them….Recognition was also carried out to start a discussion about how a person can represent themselves digitally in physical space.”
