Media Innovation Technology Series: Visual Storytelling & Art Direction

Mimi Violette and Ben Sasson: Visual Storytelling & Art Direction from Student films to Spiderman

Come and join us at PCU’s Polska Campus at the Blanicka entrance for the first MITS of the semester. 

If you cannot be here in person, then you can join using this zoom link at the advertised time or watch the Facebook livestream.

Ben and Mimi are both parents and artists. They have a combined career in the film industry of nearly 30 years. In that span, they’ve dabbled into catering for casts & crews, styled actors, consulted as script advisors, designed numerous Look Books, but mostly, they’ve ventured heavily in Art Direction, Graphic Design and Academia. 
For their Media Innovation Technology lecture, Ben and Mimi, who are mostly self-taught, will discuss their background in film across a range of budgets, from student-films to Spiderman 
And they’ll offer insight, as instructors, on how visualization––on a budget––intensifies cinematic language.
