SRQ Staff Writer speaks to Ringling College of Art and Design Students
Last week, SRQ Magazine’s Staff Writer, Phil Lederer spoke to a group of Ringling College of Art and Design students about the components that create a well-written article. The group consisted of three illustration majors and one game art major who will be conducting interviews and writing articles about trending news and topics on the Ringling College campus.
“There’s so much about journalism that can’t be taught except by doing,” says Lederer. “The research, the interview, the writing and skills relating to all of these can be taught to some extent, but the actual implementation relies more on repeatedly doing.”
Lederer equipped the students with tips on how to go about researching a subject before an interview, how to conduct an interview and then how to construct a meaningful article that not only informs but is enjoyable to read. Ringling College often supplements their classroom activities with visiting professionals and guest speakers and we are thrilled that Phil could represent SRQ MEDIA.
“Speaking to students provides a further opportunity to impress upon them the importance of journalism and give them the confidence to pursue it,” says Lederer. “It’s their right as journalists to ask the hard questions and tell the hard truth honestly. Confidence is key in that regard and although journalists should be prepared to stand alone if necessary, a foundation of community support and professional encouragement goes a long way.”
SRQ Magazine is proud to support events at Ringling College of Art and Design through student and faculty publication, Landline.
Well, if anyone were to ever know the definition of Cool Sh!t, our money is on the students of Ringling College of Art and Design. On January 30th at 8pm, student organization “The Designimators” are going public with this knowledge and they’re ready to educate the rest of us.
Made up of 40 student members and five officers of The Motion Design Department, The Designimators are showcasing their amazing talents at the upcoming Motion Design Exhibition, COOL SH!T, on Friday, January 30 from 8- 10 pm. Entirely student planned, promoted and produced, the Designimators are pleased to feature over 60 submissions in the exhibition.
With five monitors (one designated for each student level and one featuring all submissions with sound), this event encourages audience interaction and mingling. Submissions highlight the entire motion design process: starting with storyboards outlining the creative process, style frames that carefully illustrate the envisioned piece and the animated segment.
SRQ is proud to promote these and other on-campus events in partnership with Landline and the students of Ringling College of Art and Design.
Stop by Ringling College’s Exhibition Hall next Friday to be blown away by the young talent in our community. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served. For a map of the Ringling College of Art and Design campus, click here.
See you there!
