QC Student Takes Top Honors at Rarebit Animation Festival

Congratulations to Jadxia Carbajal, Christian Dantzler and Jessica Hong for having work selected to screen in the 2018 Rarebit Animation Festival at Queensborough Community College.  Additionally, the jury awarded Jadxia Carbajal’s film Battery, about her personal experience with Type I Diabetes, the top honor and she took home the 2018 Rarebit Award.

Christian Dantzler’s film, Ruptured, was about learning to love while simultaneously navigating childhood society was created using Flash and Photoshop, as well as some traditional pencil on paper techniques.  Both Christian and Jadxia’s films were two-semester projects in Professor Grella’s ARTS 370 Animated Documentary course.

Jessica Hong’s film Ghost Ice Cream is a humorous yarn about a ghost that is in love with ice cream.  Hong, an upcoming senior, created her film in Professor Cowan’s Intro to Animation course.  She is currently working on a film about irrational fears, to be finished in December.

This was the second year for the Rarebit Animation Festival which takes its name from Dream of the Rarebit Fiend, the innovative and often surreal comic strip by one-time Sheepshead Bay resident Winsor McCay (c.1867-1934). Perhaps best known for his popular strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, McCay was a pioneer in the art of animation–his  cartoon Gertie the Dinosaur (1914) was one of the very first animated films ever created.

QC Critical Social Practice Design Gig

Last year we launched a new Advanced Certificate in Critical Social Practice and now we have two great students approaching completion of the program this May. What we don’t have is a certificate to give these certificate grads. SPQ would like to offer a $300 award for a design that could be printed on a POD type basis that we could provide certificate candidates. Perhaps it would even have some 3D printed element or seal? Let us know if you think this is something your students might find intriguing and worthwhile, but also if you feel the fee is fair.

If you are interested please contact Professor Sholette at gsholettestudio@gmail.com.

Design Internships at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab Studio

Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a NASA center in Pasadena, California https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/

At the studio we work on a wide variety of design projects from graphics for Mission Proposals to Sculptures + Interactive Displays featuring live mission data, etc. We help the scientists and engineers “visually think through their thinking”.

Here is a link to the studio to give you a better idea.

https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/thestudio/

We are often looking at portfolios for freelancers and internships. The studio doesn’t currently hire interns but other departments often ask us for recommendations.  It would be great to connect with any graphics / illustration /environmental or industrial design students that might be interested in internships. Or alumni /graduates that are interested in freelance opportunities.

There currently is a Systems Design Internship opportunity for Early Mission Formulation. This a hands-on opportunity, fast paced and geared towards design thinking, industrial / product design.

As for interest in the studio can email here: studio.questions@jpl.nasa.gov

Any interested students should apply at the link below for either Summer or Year Round Internships.
