Some of tomorrow's brightest multimedia artists and designers display their web designs, computer animations, interactive games, and 3D models at the Ohlone College 12th annual "Multimedia Festival" on Thursday, May 16. Since its debut in 2001, the festival has grown in size and scope as the Ohlone Multimedia Department has attracted students with a broader range of experience and education in media arts. The festival is now a forum for high-caliber works of digital art including 3D renderings, 2D and 3D animation, web design, and video games.

"This year's program is being juried by a group of high profile industry experts," explains festival organizer and multimedia faculty, Isabel Reichert. Student projects are reviewed and awards given by Luther Thie, art director for Sony Entertainment; Charles Huang, CEO of Green Throttle Games, Inc.; and Kevin Richardson, game designer for gamespin.net.

More than 60 students submitted projects for review in the hopes of winning an award, which will be presented at this year's ceremony. Festival activities will take place in Hyman Hall, Room 116, and will include food and beverages, digital entertainment, and a special awards program.
