Behind the lens of Savannah Film Festival: portraits for the ages

My favorite part of any magazine is a few pages in, the story behind the cover photo. I always want to know what the photographer was thinking. If the Savannah Film Festival had a magazine, its cover would be by Adam Kuehl (B.F.A., Photography), and he was good enough to indulge my curiosities about what’s happening in the portraits he took to commemorate the 15th annual Savannah Film Festival.

Inside New York Comic Con 2013: a panelist's perspective

“…riiiight, I’m supposed to be interjecting.” That’s what I had to keep reminding myself as I sat on a panel at New York Comic Con 2013 listening to the other panelists speak. I couldn’t help but get lost in what they had to say since, just like the audience, I’m a fan of their work. I love comics, always have, always will. So to be a panelist at the conference was thrilling.

Documentary by environmental filmmaking students captures exhilarating footage and a prize

If you haven’t noticed, cable television is awash with channels dedicated to wildlife. Discovery, Nat Geo Wild, Animal Planet, all of them rely on the unique craft of environmental filmmaking and, in many cases, the bravery of the crew behind the camera.

Everyone likes balloons at a party. In the case of installation artist Jason Hackenwerth’s (M.F.A., Painting) buoyant sculptures, balloons are the party. Miami’s Art Basel, New York’s Guggenheim and London’s Victoria and Albert Museum have hosted Jason’s stunning creations. Last night, he debuted his work in Atlanta at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

A career in … amusement: It's not just about the rides

What if I told you that you could use your vacation to Disney or LEGOLAND to build notions of career planning in your child’s little noggin? Here’s how. Take Johnny’s favorite attraction and point out all of the things that make it work. Notice the queue and how it’s engineered to entertain while moving hundreds of bodies efficiently. Call his attention to the overall story being told and how that tale made him want to buy a hotdog at the seamlessly integrated snack kiosk.

Renowned designer Dakota Jackson brings his legacy to the classroom

Have you seen “Wynton Marsalis: A Youngarts Masterclass” on HBO? The series chronicles the jazz legend mentoring three young musicians. I couldn’t change the channel. There’s something magnetic about seeing a virtuoso draw the potential out of his charges, about seeing an icon become vulnerable in order to deconstruct the process that makes him brilliant.
