    Announcing the Winners of The Future – Powered by Fiction Competition

    On May 14, 2014, Intel futurist Brian David Johnson took to Google Hangouts to announce the winners of The Future – Powered by Fiction, a competition that challenged young people worldwide to think critically and creatively about possible futures we can build together. The competition is part of Tomorrow Project USA, an ongoing collaboration between Intel, the Center for Science and the Imagination and the Society for Science & the Public.

    Check out the video, recorded live at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, CA, to learn more about the competition, our ten $1000 prize winners, and the 33 other stories that will be published in a series of quarterly anthologies throughout 2014 and 2015. You can also see a full list of winners at: http://isef.tomorrow-projects.com/quarterlyvisions. And keep an eye out for the first in the series of four anthologies, titled The Future – Powered by Fiction, which will be released in summer 2014.

    Digital Culture Film: Under Fire!

    A young heroine must fight not only her nemesis, but the doubts from the very city she tries to save.

    I created this 2D frame-by-frame animated short for my Capstone project for ASU’s Digital Culture program during the Spring 2014 semester. I wanted to create a relatable character with real-world problems. When overcome with discouragement and doubt, it is easy for us to lose sight of our passion and drive. As a 2D artist, it can become quite disheartening to hear 2D frame-by-frame animation classed as a “dying art.” Through the use of  Under Fire! I hope to reinvigorate a drive for traditional animation as well as encourage audiences to get back to the roots of their passions. I worked in collaboration with fellow Digital Culture seniors Alexa Boccieri and Antwaun Smith to complete this project.

    “Under Fire!” debuted on Friday, May 2nd, 2014 at ASU’s Digital Culture Showcase.
