Professor of Motion Media Design

Description

From titles and promos for movies and TV shows to advertising campaigns and projection mapping for live events, SCAD motion media design students create content for screens of all sizes, and sometimes turn any surface into a screen. The numerous achievements of SCAD’s motion media design students – from top honors at the Art Directors Club Awards and Red Dot Communication Design Awards to the red carpet, where an interdisciplinary team of students won the 2017 Student Emmy Award for ‘Best Scripted Series’ – evince the professional focus imbued in the SCAD academic experience.

As a professor of motion media design, you have the opportunity to join the “Best Motion Graphics School” ranked by The Rookies in 2017. The SCAD team of motion media design faculty mirror professional practices of the industry in their classes and engage students through a comprehensive, interdisciplinary course of study including animation, film and television, graphic design, visual effects, user experience design and more.

Preparing the next generation of creative professionals, you should be an enthusiastic educator who possesses passion for design, a strong desire to share knowledge through experience and persistence, and the ability to encourage students to think creatively and critically. The ideal candidate will have a background in projection mapping, augmented reality and virtual reality, and the ability to synthesize these emerging fields to create new experiences and destinations.

Named among the best small cities in the U.S by Condé Nast Traveler and listed by Moviemaker Magazine as one of the best small cities to live and work as a filmmaker, Savannah offers an inviting climate and a culturally rich downtown, providing a real-world workshop for the study of art and design. The university blends seamlessly into the Savannah landscape and provides students with a dynamically layered learning environment in which to thrive.
