CHDS’s Media Hub’s lead Jake Waxman uses Q1 to assess the 2017 activities and strategize for 2018. “We’ve taken a brief pause in producing new materials and engaging new partners to debrief on what we’ve learned about our immersion residency program”, Jake shared, adding “we’ve also used this time to assess our equipment needs to improve the pedagogy in the multimedia we create.”
In consultation with project coordinator Meg Harding, the Media Hub designed an addition to the background set to eliminate visual distractions in the backdrop.

The addition of a tilt-shift lens, now used primarily in the Hub, gives the video a different aesthetic that lends itself well to the Hub’s set up. “Although this isn’t a traditional choice for videography, we can use the lens to draw the viewer’s gaze to where we want it and now can more dramatically pinpoint exactly where we want viewer to look in the foreground,” Jake adds.
