Motion Picture Arts students wrapped up academic year 2017-18 with two final screenings.
On May 16, junior and senior students presented their thesis projects, which gave them the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of visual storytelling. Each student was responsible for writing, directing and editing their own thesis film, collaborating with peers of all majors to create the finished project.
On May 18, four motion picture arts students presented their capstone projects. Capstone projects are produced by three-and-four-year motion picture arts students as a synthesis of their artistic and academic training at Interlochen Arts Academy. The capstone is an independent project that challenges the student to conduct research on a topic and develop a creative response in the genre of new media, writing, non-fiction or narrative productions. Congratulations to Luke Broyles, Tairyu Hirayama, Davey Huang and Ye Michael Ma on the successful completion of their capstone projects!
