DESIGN AND VISUAL COMMUNICATION

We all make decisions, consciously or unconsciously, based on what we see. In a world full of screens, visual communication is necessary to communicate your ideas effectively. This theme allows students to learn and practice their visual communication skills.

We all love melas. The fun games, the sugary food and the cheap prizes that are up for grabs. We want you to host an Energy Mela, a carnival with fun games based on energy transformation. We need you to take care of all aspects of mela from building games, to designing posters and decorating the space.

Momasur

#building #prototyping #drama #creativity

 

The villagers of Rangatar have been terrorized by the demon Momasur. He has been crossing the river and eating all their cattles on a regular basis. The chief of the village has struck a deal with Momasur promising that they will be regularly delivering momos to his doorstep given that he stops eating their cattles. Also Momasur has demanded a drama from the villagers while he devours his momos. Since all the villagers are terrified of crossing the river and delivering those delicious momos to Momasur, they will have to design a transportation device that delivers momos across the river without a human having to cross the bridge. The villagers will also have to script and direct a drama to keep the demon entertained during his feast.

Restriction is a very useful tool for creativity. Imagine yourself having to tell a story in 90 seconds, it will make you force yourself to be very creative. After learning the basics of videography techniques you will make a short 90 seconds video on a topic of your choice (approved by the instructor)
