The Davidson Media Arts students visited SpaceJunk Media to learn about motion graphics, animation and video in a creative business setting. They were hosted by former Davidson students, Zak Tietjen and Nick Schooner. Both are animators at the media group. SpaceJunk is a full service motion graphics and live action studio comprised of a diverse crew of artists, all with a passion for bringing stories to life. They partner with a wide variety of brands and create authentic digital experiences that connect in powerful ways.
The students also visited WOSU/PBS production studios on The Ohio State University Campus. Executive Producers, directors, studio hands, and motion graphics artists discussed careers in public television and media. Our local PBS affiliate is responsible for disseminating national programming, creating local news, and In The Know, and Emmy award winning programs such as Broad and High and Columbus Neighborhoods.
