AS A MEDIA WRITING lecturer, I cherish the opportunity to see inside the creative minds of the multimedia and amimation students at the Limerick School of Art & Design. This semester, Alice Coleman has produced one of the best Media Writing Notebooks that I've reviewed in the past decade.
I snapped and uploaded Alice's work to OneDrive, using my Lumia 1020 under the natural light on our Clonmel campus. Some of colour wheel choices make a compelling case to actually hold and leave through her work during our 2015 Pen & Pixel exhibition. But for the next three weeks, Alice's notebook is being examined by art students who hope to create portfolio work good enough to gain them entry onto the creative degree courses we offer on campus.
The Media Writing Notebook is meant to capture the essence of several films (Up, Blade Runner and Band of Brothers) along with major themes explored during the semester-long module. We dove deep into realism, remembrance, and semiotics throughout the course.
