Valley College will be hosting Media Arts Student Screenings, a showcase of student work from the Media Arts Department from fall 2012 and spring 2013 on Sat, March 29. It is free and open to the general public.
“This is not only for Monarchs,” said Prof. Chad Sustin. “This event is for anybody who appreciates media art. I encourage everyone to bring friends and family.”
The event will take place in the Recital Hall in the Art Building. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the films are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.
“The doors open at six,” said Sustin. “But, I highly suggest people to come earlier and enjoy the food and drinks.”
The event will hopefully showcase work from the Broadcasting, Photography and Journalism departments, depending on which departments choose to display their work. The program is currently in development, and is estimated to last approximately two hours.
The event will feature films from both current students and alumni. “The films that will be presented,” said Sustin. “The majority of the students are still here and some of them have already graduated and moved on with their careers.”
“I’m actually very excited because one of my films is going to be shown,” said Daniel Moreno, film major. “I think everyone should participate by attending and support our school.”
It is a good chance for people to come and support Valley’s artists, as well as a great excuse for students to get together. “I think it is a wonderful idea,” said astrophysics major Zareh Odabashian. “It sounds like a lovely place for a date.”
It is also a good opportunity for students who are in the media arts to see other students’ work and possibly be inspired.
Broadcasting major Shane Martinez said, “Considering I took a cinema class and learned quite a bit about movies and galleries such as images, I find this would be very beneficial and also very interesting to see all of the displays.”
