Arts Technology Partners With MU Athletics

This fall two classes in the Arts Technology major are partnering with Millikin Athletics to provide Performance Learning experiences to our students and also serve the digital media needs of Athletics. The Preproduction for Video and Cinema 1 class, taught by Instructor Eric Hector, is working with Sam Osborne, Director of Golf, to create a Season Preview video for the MU Golf Team. This video will help promote the team to the community and also potential recruits. Arts Technology students will be engaged in the entire process including planning the storyboard, capturing the interviews and other footage, and editing the final video. Additionally, Professor Jessa Wilcoxen’s Motion Graphics class will be creating custom crowd motivation animations to be shown on the Video Board at the Frank M. Lindsay Field for the men’s and women’s soccer teams. Students in the class will present their concepts to Assistant Athletic Director for Sports Information and Athletic Communication, Bryan Marshall this semester and the chosen pieces will begin being displayed between plays at the start of the 2018 fall soccer season.
