Stellar year in the DMaC department!
We've had a great year in the department and we have the work to prove it! Please take a few minutes and look through some of the excellent student work from the 2013-14 academic year.
This professional project was worked on by Ryan Fleet with other communication students during his time as president of the communication club at Hilbert.
The above project completed by the professional seminar class (COM 493). As part of the service learning component of the course students worked with a client to produce a series of promotional videos.
The project above is the product of the digital filmmaking class (COM 365). It's a professional video profile of a successful alumnus from Hilbert's business department. The video is presently being used to promote that department.
This is a short film produced by the digital filmmaking and digital film editing classes (COM 365 and COM375, respectively).
