Epic Stories have Epic Impact through Imaging, Animation, Interactivity and Sound.

THE STORY:

Our climate is changing... Imagine the world in 2063. It’s heating up and getting more crowded. The polar ice cap is melting, causing increasing water level and flooding; the temperature is rising, causing the permafrost to melt; the cities and industries have grown, producing increased levels of carbon and air pollution; violent weather events and diseases are greatly depleting our resources. How do we survive?

THE GOAL:

Taught by Kendall instructor Susan Bonner and mentored by Kendall alumnus and Playstation game concept artist Darren Geers of Studiovania, eleven Digital Media students in the Concept and Production course have created a Global Climate Change Interactive Survival Story. The students’ goals as concept and production artists and designers were to:
 educate middle school students ages 8-14 about global climate change; use a narrative to make the story of climate change effects impactful; and provide an action plan for how to affect change now.
