USJ FACULTY OF CREATIVE INDUSTRIES – Projects of Graduating Students of Bachelor of Communication and Media showcased

In an aim to showcase the graduating students’ projects, the Faculty of Creative Industries’ Department of Communication and Media held two successive events on May 29th, Wednesday: the Opening of the “Emotion” Multimedia Exhibition and the Premiere of “4 Short Stories You Won’t Believe.”

The “Emotion” Multimedia Exhibition attempted to encapsulate the subject of intuitive feelings interpreted through photography and video production. The Opening was officially held at the Kent Wong Exhibition Gallery of the University’s Ilha Verde Campus at 6:00 PM. The students’ works (photography and videos) will be open for public viewing, with free admission, until June 10th, 2019, during the University’s opening hours.

Each of the students’ works freely explores the central theme of the exhibition, with reference to specific subjects expressed through their outputs, such as desire, death, abstract representations of life and human connections, among others. The photography exhibition not only showcases the students’ creative eye in capturing vivid imagery, but also in adding more depth to their works through photo manipulation and technical treatment.

The Premiere of “4 Short Stories You Won’t Believe” took place at the Auditório Centenário de Fátima of the University’s Ilha Verde Campus, at 7:00PM. The video installation showcased a summary of students’ works throughout their course, before the screening of four short mockumentaries that touched various subject matters revolving around the human psyche, including interpersonal interaction with the community and dealing with technology. The purpose of the documentaries was to further debate and raise awareness of the concept of “fake news,” given that the challenge given to students was to create fiction that was highly believable and could be perceived as actual reality.
