RTVF graduate and major participate in CSU Research Competition

27 05 2010

Congratulations to recent RTVF graduate Joe Salvatore and RTVF major Katie Wright, finalists at the SJSU level in the CSU Student Research Competition on March 11, 2010.

Now doing freelance film work, Joe presented “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall,” a study of users’ perceptions of self in relation to their Second Life avatars.

Katie presented “Armageddon Meets Apocalypse,” an examination of end-of-the-world themed films and whether it’s useful to think about such films as an apocalyptic genre of their own.

Both sets of research emerged out of Spring 2009’s RTVF 173 (Media Theory & Research), taught by Dr. Alison McKee and Dr. Kimb Massey.
