2010 IML Showcase (USC)

On May 6th, 2010, the IML will host its annual Showcase event. Our faculty and students have worked very hard this year on a variety of projects and initiatives; this is our opportunity to share our experiences with our colleagues, friends, and community.

The 2010 Showcase celebrates the efforts of the third cohort of students to complete the Honors in Multimedia Scholarship program. These students have completed four years of IML coursework, learning the theory, creation, and integration of academic digital media. To receive their Honors designation, each student has individually created an honors thesis project, a media-rich exploration of their diverse studies at USC. Their work is a testament to their creativity and research abilities, reflecting the academic rigor and innovative thinking needed to imagine scholarly production as it is transformed through media tools and networks.

This year’s showcase also presents projects from other IML courses and cross-campus collaborations. Projects include explorations of social media relevance, animated information visualization, 3-D virtual theatre, computational cinema, user-enhanced musical history, interactive documentaries, and much more.

The opening of the showcase will be May 6th from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm. Afterwards, the showcase will remain open to the public until Thursday, May 13th.

We hope to see you there!
