Talking with Tom Bray About an Emmy, Animation, and NMC History
While in Monterey for the 2009 NMC Summer Conference, we had the opportunity to video a short interview with Tom Bray (of the University of Michgan Digital Media Commons), who has been active in the NMC from the very beginning of the organization.
Tom and his colleagues Katherine Weider (Art & Design), Dan Fessahazion (Digital Media Commons) and Zack Jacobsen-Weaver (Art & Design) had won a 2009 Michigan Emmy Award in "Advanced Media Arts/Entertainment" for their work on the Animation Station, a fascinating portable studio that allows anyone to creation stop-motion digital videoanimation using real objects and markers.
We got to talk to Tom to learn more about the Animation Station as well as what changes he has seen in the field of New Media and even where it might be going.
If you are interested in learning more about the Animation Station, visit the Play Gallery or watch the quick video below. We are working with Tom to try and have this available at the 2010 NMC Summer Conference in Anaheim.
Congratulations to Tom and his team on this well deserved recognition.
