Research Guides

Posted by courtneycox2009 on March 2, 2010

The library has now put together a simple and very useful research guide for all majors here at Ringling. Research Guides are here to help everyone with researching topics about their major. There are even short videos, pictures, books and magazines that relates to the specific major and can  be useful for enhancing one’s work.

How to use Research Guides:

  • Click on the individual Research Guide you’d like to see
  • Begin researching by clicking on the different tabs
  • Each tab will have different  information about the intended major which are all highly informative.

Though Research Guides are still in the process of being perfected, students can at least familiarize themselves with the format of this new strategy.

What is Motion Design?

Posted by courtneycox2009 on March 2, 2010

Many students and staff around campus keep asking what the new major of Motion Design is. As a first year Motion Design student, I can simply say that Motion Design is literally  a bit of everything. We learn a animation, film, photography, claymation, stop motion, graphic design, illustration, visual effects, and much more. Here are a few examples of what Motion Design really is.

Allison Schulnik, the director of this video created this using claymation along with stop motion, which is something that our Motion Design Department will be doing a lot of. This is a great example of what we do in Motion Design.

Another great example of Motion Design is the credits for Sherlock Holmes. Notice how parts of the film turn into illustrations and graphics- that’s simply what Motion Design entails, and what the future holds for this new department.

Periodicals: Stash

Posted by christinefra on November 19, 2009

If you’ve ever been to our Library, one of the first things you might have noticed first is the two walls lined with our periodicals. Our magazine subscriptions are wide and varied, and they run the gamut from Fine Arts to Pop Culture and beyond. There are certainly a few magazines here I’d never seen before, but of all the ones I’ve become acquainted with, there are none quite like Stash.

You can tell this will be good.

Stash is, according to their website, “the planet’s only monthly video showcase of animation, VFX and motion graphics”. They stick true to their mission, and each DVD is packed with a whole bunch of videos short films, broadcast design, music videos and commercials from around the world. This wide range of subjects, artists and clients produces equal variety in styles and solutions. Best of all, each DVD is accompanied by a booklet which contains details for each of the pieces.

It’s definitely worth a peek. The variety is each issue is sure to inspire or at the very least, amuse.
