Digital Storytelling and Media Production: The CUNY Film Festival

Instructor: Robert Small
Offered by Lehman College
Thursdays, 1:00 – 4:40pm
Macaulay Honors College, Classroom: 3N

This is the spring semester of the New Media Lab program. It is devoted to learning how to market and promote a concept using transmedia storytelling. We focus most of the spring semester on building the community for our own CUNY Film Festival. Students are responsible for advancing the narrative of the festival through blogging, creative writing, web based graphic arts and hands-on video production all culminating in a systematically dispersed social media campaign. It’s an exciting way to be involved in video and online content production.

Art 451 produces all aspects of the festival itself which takes place in April of 2018. This class is a 3- credit course given through Lehman College and meets at the Macaulay building on west 67th street Thursdays from 1:00 pm- 4:00 PM once a week. Students need an e-permit from their advisor to register. Any questions? – Contact Professor Robert Small at
