Hands on our logo: Cogswell College students dive deep

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016 by Nadine Obst

You might ask yourself what this title is all about. Well, it's been a while now since we kind of secretly started this little project with a group of students from the Cogswell College course "MediaWorks". The Digital Media School is based in the heart of Silicon Valley in California. "Media Works" is a collaborative program that brings together students from the Audio and 3D Departments. The aim of the project is typical to create a short audiovisual piece for a partner organization. Students are asked to produce animated logo short movies or sequences that include sound design, original music, and animation. They must work through the entire production process, complete with real-life client meetings, creative briefing, concept generation, participation in the approval process, project and time management, deadlines and full-scale production individually, in teams and cross-teams.

RebusFarm supports Oxfam Deutschland

RebusFarm decided to support Oxfam Germany with their campaign "Unternehmer für Unternehmer" - "Companies for Companies". The purpose of this campaign is to support individuals in third world countries on becoming more independent. In groups, they receive education and support on their entrepreneurship which leads them to more autonomy. Oxfam International understands that many causes of poverty are linked: "The injustice of poverty demands a powerful and practical response to address both its causes and its impact on peoples' lives."

Please join us and support this great organization!

Towards the end of February 2016, the RebusFarm Team visited Venice to meet up with Fabio D'Agnano, Director of the Master Course at the Universtità Iuav de Venezia (IUAV). With the support of his passionate staff, we kicked off the RebusFarm Rendering Competition "Another Point of View". Fifty young students with varying levels of experience in 3D are currently attending the Master Course in Digital Architecture (MADI). For the contest, they were asked to pick a photo taken by a master in architectural photography and change the point of view using 3D software. The RebusFarm team also came to Venice to instruct the MADI students in the general use of our render farm as most of them had never used one before. Our CTO Gerphil Niebur gave a detailed workshop.
