The annual Film & Moving Image (FMI) Senior Showcase features capstone work from the graduating majors. Students work as writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, editors and more. Before we screen the films, however, we always like to offer up a preview of these wonderful coming attractions, via the specially designed posters for each film. This year, these posters are once again displayed in the gallery space of the School of Design, starting Friday, April 30, and as we did last year, we also present them virtually on this blog. Click on the above image to be taken to our Vimeo site to watch a short video of all the posters, or click on the thumbnails, below, to see each image in higher resolution. The actual showcase, itself, will take place on Wednesday, May 12, starting at 7, screened live on our YouTube channel (playlist will be activated just before the livestream). So mark your calendars for a night of great cinema!
