Student works on display for Media Fest at Cook Center

Corsicana — Navarro College Multimedia department presented its annual Media Fest at the Cook Center Planetarium on Thursday. It was an opportunity for friends and family to enjoy the products of hard work and long hours put in by the multimedia students during the past year.

Projects displayed included graphic design, web design, traditional and 3D animation, audio, video, and interactive presentations as well as traditional media drawing and paintings.

Trey Reyna, Multimedia student and member of the Celtic music trio The Dublin Doubles, opened the show and played a brief intermission with an acoustic performance of contemporary and traditional folk songs.

Organization and narration was provided by Program Coordinator Mark Rosenberg.

An overhead display of a computer desktop was projected on the ceiling of the planetarium and each student had a folder showcasing their work. Group projects were included as well as projects done outside the classroom. As works were displayed, Rosenberg described the medium and a little about each student, adding how certain skills may be transferred into the workplace.

“The work continues to grow more sophisticated and creative every year,” Rosenberg said. “The students have effectively created an integration of mixed media and video editing. I would also like to thank Planetarium director Bruce Brazell for making us feel at home and sharing the facility with our program.”

Multimedia specialists combine the use of audio, video, graphics, and text to provide and disseminate information to others in an aesthetic manner. By combining graphics, audio files, animation and video components, the product of multimedia specialists can often make stronger impacts than printed guides or tutorials.
