Digital Filmmaking in Sharjah
2011. I recently applied to be on the Fulbright Specialist Program list.
One important motivation for my application to be included on the list is that it provides a great opportunity for me to collaborate with educational institutions or organizations, faculty and administrators in foreign countries in several ways—as a filmmaker, teacher, artist-designer-producer, or educational program consultant.
My application describes the knowledge and experience I have and how that could be particularly useful in international contexts to faculty and programs in new, innovative, and creative fields of scholarship that integrate/apply film and digital media design–such as fine arts, mass communication, educational technology, and others.
Part of the application asked “what are your five most important professional accomplishments?”
It’s a very difficult question, at least it was for myself.
One of the most important accomplishments was when I designed from scratch a learning facility for digital design and media production with a complete curriculum (accredited).SEE: http://www.arabianbusiness.com/property/article/505122-school-of-the-futureThe program and facility were voted “Best Educational Facility” by the Digital Media magazine.I consider this accomplishment, the design of the facility, its resources and its educational programs, to be one of the top three things I have ever accomplished in my life.
