UCB provided another opportunity for the multimedia students to explore new media boundaries and offered the audience a unique gallery experience. "The Multimedia Video Showcase 2013" organized by the UCB Communication & Multimedia Department featured 10 short video films done by the UCB Multimedia students on May 5th, 2013 at the Saar Cinema.
Under the direction of the Communication and Multimedia faculty, whose role is to both guide and challenge their students, students are given opportunities for hands-on experience in every aspect of short filmmaking: from the conception of an idea, to the creation of a shooting script, to casting, budgeting, directing, filming, editing and marketing the final product. According to Sh. Ebrahim Al Khalifa, the Executive Director, Administration & Finance, UCB, “The video showcase was a visual treat for the audience with moments that were especially lovely, serendipitous, interesting, candid and moving”.
“There are many students who are really having an interest towards this field and we would like to boost up their skills and talents so that we can get more young people from Bahrain to raise this field to an international level”, said Mr. Zeeshan Shah, the faculty of UCB Communication & Multimedia program.
The Multimedia Visual Showcase attracted a very enthusiastic crowd and media attention which is in turn an encouragement for the UCB students to engage in such creative activities.
