Through individual and collaborative assignments, The Model Project investigates the concept of childhood memory through many material and narrative transformations. Students build 3D models defining the space of a specific memory, then explore it photographically, taking 100 different photographs where they can explore dramatic lighting and camera angles. A narrative book is made based on these 100 photographs, and the book eventually becomes a storyboard for a stop-motion video project. Students work in groups, each member is assigned a role such as Director, Producer, Secretary or Resource Manager. These production groups then learn Final Cut Pro, Premier video editing and Ableton Live sound-editing software as well as a basic introduction to digital photography. Sound engineers are invited each semester to conduct workshops on sound building and editing in the GSU School of Music.
