On Wednesday, June 1, director-producer Graham Elliott (faculty, BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department) will screen New York in Motion, his new documentary featuring 50 people in the field of motion graphics who have helped make New York a center of the industry. The interviewees include Joe Burrascano (BFA 2002 Computer Art), Jean Marco Ruesta (BFA 2004 Graphic Design), Jakob Trollbak, and BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department Chair Richard Wilde – just to name a few.
“The story of ‘motion graphics’ is an interesting story to follow since it connects to core human concepts of communication and art and expression,” says Elliott, an award-winning creative director who has done work for MTV, ESPN and Nickelodeon, among other clients.
The program begins with a reception at 7pm, followed by a screening 7:30pm, SVA Theatre, 333 West 23 Street. Admission is free and open to the public.
