Lunch & Learn Lunch Series Spring 2019:
Thomas Evans (VA): Connecting Music and Art through Technology

Returning speaker, Thomas Evans (Instagram: @detour303), comes to speak about his unique approach to breaking down barriers to bridge the gap between viewer and artistic message. His art focuses on sight, sound, and issues surrounding urban culture.

thomasEvans.png

Growing up a Military brat, I was fascinated with the feeling of exploring and learning about new communities and cultures within the fabric of society. With a backdrop of an ever-changing environment, I spent my youth asking questions about the boundaries, traditions, and status quo that boxes­ in creativity. I would always ask myself what boundaries can I break and how can I break them. This perspective of viewing the world led me to a journey of exploring a multitude of communities and how I could borrow different elements to create a new paradigm.

My current art focus is all about connecting music and fine arts through traditional methods and technology.  Accenting my focus, the sights, sounds, and issues surrounding urban culture shapes the way I approach the creation of concepts, use of tools, and overall execution of my work.

The tools I use to develop my work are not limited to any one medium.  My goal is to capture every sense of my audience, thus breaking down barriers and making it easier to be engulfed in the canvas. I see these senses as building block for bridges between the viewer and the messages I’m communicating. The more blocks I use, the better the viewer will receive the message.

Lunch & Learn Lunch Series Spring 2019: Liquid Luck (FITV); Launching a Film Company

Join FITV CAM Alumni, Ian and Lauryn Kellett, as they discuss their passion of creating a film company, Liquid Luck, in an industry that doesn’t really exist in Colorado. Working in downtown Denver with a team of five CAM graduates, Liquid Luck has built their company from bottom up to become an award willing way to tell stories through video. 

“Ian and I met in a high school film class and we decided to pursue film degrees at CAM together. While we were both in the film program we realized we needed a name to attach to the films we were creating together and so Liquid Luck was formed. We made many films in college, winning two local Heartland Emmy's as students. Once we graduated we had two options to pursue our film careers: either working for one of two film studios here in Colorado or moving to California to work from the bottom up. We decided neither was for us and decided to make Liquid Luck a full-time job. We had to make our company from the ground-up in an industry that really doesn't exist in our state. We found a niche creating videos for businesses as well as finding creative ways to fund our passion projects. Our company now has grown to a small team of 5 people, all CAM graduates, and we have an office overlooking downtown Denver and the CU campus. We are all passionate about telling stories through video, we are big film nerds, and we honestly love what we do.”
