Communication Studies

Performance! Body! Self!

Internationally-acclaimed solo performer Tim Miller will perform excerpts from his work and speak about the role performance plays in constellating identity. Known for his charged performance work which takes up the most challenging social texts of our time, Miller will share fierce and funny performance material as well as speak about how performance can be used to embolden communities, challenge injustice, and connect people with one another. This event is ponsored by the UNI Interpreters Theatre, SAVE, the Department of Communication Studies, the Department of Art and the Department of Theatre.

Fast Forward Workshop

UNI will host “Fast Forward: Overtake the Competition,” an electronic media workshop that brings together academics and media professionals. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with workshops, lunch, discussion and speakers to follow. Interactive sessions will be offered in a variety of settings to help media students prepare for their first job. Industry experts will lead discussions on best practices in broadcast journalism and help attendees polish their broadcast and production skills.

Josh Bodnar: The Secrets of a Hollywood Editor

Emmy Award winning editor Josh Bodnar will walk the audience through the creative process of one of the most talked about main title sequences in recent history, "Dexter" on Showtime. From concept to completion learn how the Dexter main title was green lite with one single image; to watching never before seen edits rejected by the client. Connecting the common threads of his creative process through different mediums, art, advertising and entertainment, Bodnar will also speak about his experience working with John Malkovich on his short film "Butterflies." Step by step see how storyboards, visual effects, type design, picture editing, sound design and client relations all play a part in how an idea is visualized. Some ideas never see the light of day; some ideas become viral sensations. 

Interpreters Theatre: "Leftovers" and "Station to Station"

The UNI Interpreters Theatre presents two solo performances by guest artists Brianne Waychoff and Ben Powell. In Leftovers, Waychoff stitches together gleaned remnants from diverse sources: Jean François Millet’s painting, The Gleaners; her grandmother’s needlepoint rendering of the same work; and Agnès Varda’s 2000  film, The  Gleaners and I. In Station to Station, Powell performs a unique collage of texts, including a collection of letters between Powell’s grandfather and great-grandfather sent between 1935 and 1936, assembled histories of the U.S. Interstate System, an old mapping guidebook, and fragments of memories and music.
