Getting down to business at Savannah Film Festival

By Tarana Mayes
Posted October 30, 2014 by Tarana Mayes
Don’t let the 90 screenings at Savannah Film Festival fool you. Savannah College of Art and Design’s week-long celebration of film is about more than art. It’s about the transactions and preparation that make it possible for us to experience the art. It’s about business: the elephant in most festival venues this week. Or if you’re film student Yang Xiao (M.F.A., film and television student), it’s the spaceship.

Savannah Film Festival: 5 benefits to future filmmakers

By Rachelle Murphy
Posted October 26, 2014 by Rachelle Murphy
I’m fortunate enough to be working at the 2014 Savannah Film Festival (Oct. 25-Nov. 1). I started with the festival in 2012 as an intern and moderator during my first year in graduate school at Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2013, I interned again under the festival’s director of operations. My festival experiences were so valuable that my thesis topic was, Beyond the Film: A Local History and Analysis of the Savannah Film Festival.

Furniture's career path runs through High Point

By Tarana Mayes
Posted October 22, 2014 by Tarana Mayes
If design is the intermediary between humans and experience, then furniture design holds the answers for how we interact with and experience our surroundings. You may never have thought about your furniture in this way, but it is the prevailing subject that rules the minds of furniture design students, in addition to materials, style, sustainability, comfort and function. There’s also the business reality to consider.

Fink’s five musts to finding a good fashion career

By Michael Fink
Posted October 14, 2014 by Michael Fink
There’s good news for fashion students. The fashion industry, like many others sectors, is starting to dust off the recession. In that time, though, we’ve advanced light years in technology and culture. Yet the fashion industry has been slow to change. That’s important to keep in mind when doing the resume rounds.

SecureCampus: a new level of safety

By Chris Smith
Posted September 18, 2014 by Chris Smith
SCAD is adding another tool to our public safety strategy when we launch the SecureCampus network, a gunfire detection system. SecureCampus will cover a two-square-mile area in downtown Savannah, Georgia, with an array of sensors  — exterior and interior — that identifies the specific audio frequency created only by gunfire. John Buckovich, director of security for the SCAD Department of Public Safety, says this new tool can give the entire SCAD community more certainty in their safety.

‘Advocate yourself’: Dyer uses social media, tenaciousness to seek dreams

By Chris Smith
Posted August 25, 2014 by Chris Smith
She was following her dream. She “worked her butt off for it.” Then she was told she didn’t make the cut. When junior Lindsay Dyer (B.F.A. advertising) came to the Savannah College of Art and Design it was because it was one of the few schools that offered a bachelor’s degree in advertising and a collegiate equestrian program. But pursuing both didn’t come easy.
