Alom from the Fino Project Runs 16-mm Film Workshop with Students

16-mm Film Screening Juan Carlos Alom

The Workshop

On the evening of November 9th, I gathered in the Ballard Institute of Puppetry theater to watch four short films produced by students with old-fashioned 16-mm cameras. The films were made in a workshop conducted by Cuban artist Juan Carlos Alom, a filmmaker and photographer whose work has been exhibited throughout the world, and Aimara Fernádez. Alom is a team member of our Fino and Global Cuban Cultures collaboration, which is in the build phase of project development. The event was sponsored by the University of Connecticut: School of Fine Arts; Robert H. Gray Memorial Lecture; Greenhouse Studios; Literatures, Cultures & Languages; El Instituto: Plank Lecture Series; Humanities Institute; Global Affairs; Dodd Center; Human Rights Institute; Connecting with the Arts; and Center for the Study of Popular Music.

We’re hiring!

Greenhouse Studios is growing, and we’re looking for an energetic, creative maker to join us as a core member of the Greenhouse Studios staff. The new Design Technologist will collaborate with Greenhouse Studios’ interdisciplinary project teams to conceive and develop technical approaches and design solutions to support innovative, multi-modal scholarly works. This is a two year, grant funded position, part of a major Mellon Foundation-funded initiative to redefine scholarly communication in the digital age. Energy, open-mindedness, a willingness to learn new technologies, a proven track record of collaboration, and excellence in one or more creative or technical disciplines is more important than knowledge of any particular technology or skill. We want someone to do great work of any sort, not adequate work of a particular sort. This is a great job for someone who wants to build a portfolio of high-quality work over which they can show real ownership and which they can take as they move on to bigger and better things.
