Dia De los Muertos/Day of the Dead: USF Student's Story about the Event (fall 2017, First Year Seminar)

Dia De los Muertos/Day of the Dead: USF Student's Story about the Event (fall 2017, First Year Seminar) | USF Events, Ideas, People | Scoop.it
Dia De Los Muertos is NOT “Mexican Halloween” 

Dia De Los Muertos is different. Rather than fearing death, people   celebrate it. The spirits are not scary, they are welcomed to roam among the living and come to their altar. 

Halloween has its origins in Celtic pagan traditions, Dia De Los Muertos comes from the indigenous people of Mexico.
sfMediaProf's insight:
Some students in USF's First Year Seminar, "Mashup: Media & Pop Culture in San Francisco" attended the Dia de los Metros procession and festival of altars at Garfield Park in the Mission district November 2, 2017.

sfMediaProf's insight:

Excellent projects for the #USFCA First Year Seminar, "Mashup: Media & Pop Culture in San Francisco," fall 2015.

 

Students went for 24 hours without electronic media (phones, internet, computers, video, etc. etc. etc.), keeping a detailed journal about their experiences.

 

Here students exhibit their projects, describing their experiences and observations.  They also integrated a theory from their research articles and videos -- and also, if they chose, from media effects theories.

 

The results are posted on Storehouse.co or Exposure.co.  Check out these great stories!

"the digital media sphere is highly complex within itself in the ways in which stories are shared and presented to greater audiences all around the world. I think the most important place to start is to ask yourself `What is a story?' and `What is storytelling?'."

 

sfMediaProf's insight:

Madeleine Forbes has some interesting insights into the processes and creation involved in storytelling -- and digital media production. Dept of Media Studies, USF: Digital Media Production spring 2014.

USF Media Studies grad Genny Hutchison spent hours in the late 1990s practically living in the USF Media Lab ... working on projects involving this new thang, Internet video.  Developing pioneer online comedy skits with Bill Allard of "Duck's Breath Mystery Theatre." Then an internship with "Nash Bridges" production on Treasure Island and around San Francisco. Then ... well, the rest is even more fun . . .

"My USF education opened my mind a lot and made me less fearful of new things... I try to make sure that the characters are fully realized human beings and not fall into stereotypical traps... I always ask myself, ‘would Professor Barker-Plumber be disappointed in me?’" —Gennifer Hutchison //We highly doubt it.
