Below is a recap video from the kick-off of our 2016-2017 event; Shot and edited by Cameron Ross.
Below is a video teaser for the prompt of SCAD Startup 2017. The film was shot and filmed by Wesley Spears.
I first founded and co-directed this event in the spring of 2016 while studying abroad with Hannah Moyers, the president of the UX club at the time. While in Hong Kong, the club was very small, and there was very little interest and awareness about User Experience Design as a major. We wanted to create an event for the club that was interdisciplinary by nature, and could expose a wide variety of students to the problem solving skills used in the product design field so they could apply it to their own field of study. With less than a week to plan the competition and gain approval, our first event was far more successful than anticipated with over 25 students participating. Since then, I have relaunched SCAD Startup in Savannah, with an expected 200+ participants this quarter.
The goal of SCAD Startup is to come out of the competition with an amazing idea, great portfolio work, and a great learning experience.
Eventually we hope to build a bridge between engineering students and designers. We have a difficult task in front of us that will take time and iteration to perfect. If you are interested in assisting us in our quest, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me directly.
