The Lycoming College seniors in the Department of Communication’s digital media communication major will present an exhibition of their artwork on Friday, April, 17 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Digital Media Gallery in the Communication Building on the corner of Fourth and Franklin streets. The event is free and open to the public.
The exhibition is one night only and will feature work from six seniors: Karisa Calvitti, Katie Dayer, Aaron Hufnagel, Ryan Krebs, Amanda Miller and Jeff Poshkus.
“Meet them at the Woods,” Calvitti’s documentary, gives viewers an inside look at the strong sense of community at The Woodlands Inn, a family business in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
Dayer’s narrative experimental film, “Perpetual Nocturne,” explores the uncertainty of life and how the human mind can warp reality when it is put under extreme stress. This film follows a young man who has begun to lose grip on reality after the sudden passing of his wife.
“Six Feet Over,” Hufnagel’s narrative film, follows a night with a notorious mobster, Bobby Iron Fist, as told by his partner, Frank.
Krebs’s film essay, “This Game Sucks: Metroid Other M,” details why the videogame “Metroid Other M” destroys the reputation of gaming’s oldest female protagonist, Samus Aran.
“Arabella,” Miller’s animation, is the story of a girl living in a town where everyone wears masks, and creativity and individuality are banned. In an act of social deviance, Arabella removes her mask and learns how to paint.
In Poshkus’s animation, “Synesthesia,” viewers will learn about synesthetes, people who experience a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sense leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sense.
The digital media communication major at Lycoming College provides students with the tools to build the skills needed to produce digital films and videos, 2D animation, photography, and graphic and web design. Digital media communication students build a portfolio of short films while classes in photography and commercial design help to develop their talents.
