Students in the 2016 Urbino, Italy program worked on some great interactive elements this year, including a before and after photo slider, a set of Google Map placemarks to highlight art installations, an audio clip from an orchestra rehearsal, and some amazing video pieces. 

Here are some of the elements students worked on:

Danica Feuz (James Madison University): An interactive slider showing Urbania, Italy immediately after the WWII bombing contrasted with today. See her story, When Terror Fell from a Friendly Sky, at: http://2016.inurbino.net/wwii-tragedy-in-urbania.

Gabriella Flamini (Rider University): An interactive map containing placemarks of art installations in the countryside around Urbino.  See her story, Thought is Faster Than Action, at: http://2016.inurbino.net/sculptor-gianni-calcagini.

Bridgette Windell (Colorado State University): Embedded audio of an amateur orchestra. See her story, The Violin Maker of Pesaro, at: http://2016.inurbino.net/violin-maker.audio

Lea Peck (University of Illinois): Besides winning honors for the best overall multimedia package (text, photos, video), Lea Peck (along with Danica Feuz) created one of the best video stories of the summer about a farmer who went to extreme measures to protect his sheep from wolves. See the story, Fighting Not Dancing with Wolves, at: http://2016.inurbino.net/wolves-vs-sheep. You can watch her video directly below.

Students Say...

The ieiMedia program really opened up my horizons; I’d never done video or web or really any photography before and it was fascinating to see how each one told a story differently. I’m hooked on video now and can’t wait to bring what I learned back to my college paper.
