Mount Marty College Graphics Students Visit Cornhuskers HuskerVision Published Date9\30\2011
Mount Marty College Instructor of Graphic Design + Media Arts, Andrew Huff, and students, Raelynn Coldwell, Rapid City, S.D., and Daniel Filsinger, Clearwater, Neb., were granted press box and field access to a recent Nebraska Cornhusker football game in Lincoln, Neb. Their visit included a full tour and access to the Michael Grace Production Studio and HuskerVision.
The goal was to give the students a chance to see animations and motion graphics like they produce in class broadcast on a much larger scale. They also learned how animated graphic design plays a part in the overall game-day production. The group had a pre-game meal in the press box and toured the media facility as well as HuskerVision and UNL’s state-of-the-art HD production control room and studio. Executive Director, Kirk Hartman, was on hand to show the group around and answer questions about the newly designed space and technical capabilities.
One of the highlights of the day was being on the field for the tunnel walk and witnessing how the HuskerVision animation and motion graphics were used to incite the crowd and influence the game.
Professor Huff said “It’s a great opportunity for our students to see animations and motion graphics presented on a grand scale to a captive audience. They also got to see software they use on a daily basis used in different ways while promoting creative outlets.”
