Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Development Director at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
I really enjoyed this presentation at what the students created. I think it's important to show different cultures and as a woman with Caribbean roots, I know how important it is to show pride of my culture. I would suggest that it would of been great to see the actual application that was created and the process of making this dance application. Otherwise, great job students!!!

I want to know more about P5JS and how you used it. I'd love to learn how to use this myself! I really liked the imagery of the bubbles and the flags overlaid on the joyous expression of dance! Good choices for the unity visuals. I think that your group did a wonderful job to produce this video of joy and unity and dance. It also makes me realize how to combine a passion for dance with a love of producing videos and maybe even some coding for effects that bring it to another level of art! The finished product is joyous and a celebration of dance and culture that is very organic and textured and worthwhile to experience. I hope that you had fun making this and learned how "production" = dance and choreography and coding and video production! Great exposure to learn about careers in the interdisciplinary future. Great job!

I loved the energy and am glad you girls were able to combine your passions for dance and technology while also representing your home. I clearly see the vision, and I can see your idea broadening and changing the way we watch dance competitions on television, as well as making it more engaging for the audience! Creating a sense of unity is an important part of bringing people together, and I'm glad you found a way to demonstrate it through technology. ⚡️👏👯‍♀️💫

👏 Teaching Artist at Pockets Change — Emoti-Con Judge
As a dancer I really appreciate your energy and the effort that went into choreographing and practicing this routine for the video! The choice to move in close the camera at the end was a simple and yet effective way to create dynamic without fancy editing of many video cuts.

I agree that the bubbles and flags work well to illustrate a feeling of unity in diversity. I would also like to know a bit more of your process. I can also see how with more time and resources to shoot in a space with more theatrical lighting this could develop into a simple yet very evocative production. I hope you all feel a sense of accomplishment with this and that through the process you've developed new skills for your future endeavors!

Thank you for a record-breaking 14th anniversary event! Comments are officially closed until next year.
