COMING EVENTS

Duncan Anderson Design Lecture Series

George Escobar – Advent Film Group
Designing for Cinema: Beyond the Page, Set, Screen, and In Between

Thursday, February 14 at 7pm
CSULB Duncan Anderson Design Gallery     Free Admission

Every word on a script leads to a visual design approach. Bringing that design to life on the set isn’t just about constructing the physical environment, costumes, and props. Designing for cinema encompasses tone, movement, and emotion. And it doesn’t stop there. Post-production elements add other layers of design, including color grading, sound mixing, and music scoring. The pacing of scene, the cadence of the dialogue, and the rhythm of the cuts are all part of the grand design. This lecture will cover how a filmmaker incorporates all of these elements under the pressures of time, budget, and personalities. “Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night."

Screening and Filmmaker Q&A: Quest

Thursday, February 21 at 6:30pm
CSULB UTC Building Room 127   Free Admission

Filmed with vérité intimacy for nearly a decade, QUEST is the moving portrait of the Rainey family living in North Philadelphia. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, Christopher "Quest" Rainey, and his wife, Christine'a "Ma Quest" raise a family while nurturing a community of hip hop artists in their home music studio. It's a safe space where all are welcome, but this creative sanctuary can't always shield them from the strife that grips their neighborhood. Epic in scope, QUEST is a vivid illumination of race and class in America, and a testament to love, healing and hope. Directed by Jonathan Olshefski.

While we can confidently say that the future is here in terms of technological advances, we are a long way from truly understanding its impact.

In this talk, Carla Diana will discuss the impact of 4D Design, from interactive objects and clothing to mixed reality and robotics, looking at the critical work that today’s design students will do to shape the world of tomorrow.
