FALL 2016 ELECTIVES
I am writing to encourage you to sign up for my Film Branding workshop this fall. This is a landmark 3-credit course that will meet on Tuesdays from 10-2:00. Landmark because it has never happened at MICA before! The course is based on my professional experience branding Independent Films for niche audiences through the industry at large. With the ever growing myriad of short and feature films entering the film festival, broadcast, and distribution circuits, this field holds VAST opportunity for Designers. Not to mention that the Brand is the Filmmaker’s first interface with their audience and essential for Indie Films to be recognized in competitive environments. Join me for this exciting opportunity for Designers and Filmmakers to collaborate and prepare for the real world. ~ Kirsten D'Andrea Hollander

In Spring 2017 the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) will publish the inaugural issue of FULL BLEED, a new critical journal of art and design. We are looking for content of relevance to a diverse community of artists, designers, and critics. Our orientation will be global, as we seek outstanding essays, polemics, criticism, belle lettres, artwork, and design from contributors around the world. Among other topics, FULL BLEED’s first issue will take up human migration. We seek submissions that address global crossings, homelands lost and found, and the movement of peoples past and present. Some but not all of the features in the journal will focus attention on this theme. Please email abstracts (no more than 200 words), along with a brief biography, to Paul Jaskunas at firstname.lastname@example.org, between now and January 1, 2017. Alternatively, you may email completed works by February 1, 2017.
