Next semester, my wife will graduate with a BFA in Digital Film Making and a Minor in Fine Arts. But this semester, she's preparing her portfolio for her grad school applications. But her first choice, Savannah College of Art and Design's Motion Media MFA, required an example of typographic motion, which unfortunately, she did not have. In fact, she has yet to even take a class in typography, so she was a little worried about that hole in an otherwise exceptional body of work. So she applied for a fellowship that would afford her the money (and therefore the time) to teach herself typography and create a work by semester's end. Of course, not to take the easy way out, she also incorporated stop-motion animation. This is the result:
I'm ridiculously proud of my wife and her work. She continually impresses me with not only her work ethic but her brilliance and creativity. To date, her department has sent her to three conferences to showcase her work, to DC twice (once on a field trip for exceptional students and once to create a virtual tour for a science museum), and a short documentary she made for a museum exhibit has gone on to be installed in museums across the state. She's met the creator of FarmVille, been invited to New Zealand by museums to work on their installations, and has already been offered jobs for when she graduates. She's amazing. And I'm married to her. That's our song :-P
