Rowan University Presents A Conversation With... Vince Gilligan, the creator/producer of Breaking Bad and The X-Files Hosted by David Bianculli and Mike Donovan

Writer and producer Vince Gilligan rose to prominence in the television world after penning some of the most memorable episodes of the cult science fiction series "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002). Today, he's found success on his own as the creator of "Breaking Bad". The show netted overwhelmingly positive response from audiences, as well as a 2008 Emmy for Gilligan's direction of the pilot episode.

The News Literacy Movement: An Issue with Answers

In our social mediated, turbo driven world of news is the journalist still in charge of content? If not, at what cost?  When content is driven by the news consumer should the journalist role change from gatekeeper to educator? Harkening back to 1990’s movements of civic journalism, but impacted by a 24/7 visually driven, social mediated new cycle should news literacy become a required course for all citizens, scholars and students?  Key questions that demand answers this panel will explore.

Bob Dotson, NBC News national correspondent, TODAY; Creating Effective Storytellers in the Age of Twitter

Bob Dotson has been in more motel rooms than the Gideon Bible, crisscrossing this country, four million miles, practically non-stop, for forty years, searching for people who are practically invisible, the one who change our lives, but don’t take time to Twitter and tell us about it.  They may not run for President or go on talk shows, but without their contribution, the kind of country we love would not exist.  These are people with thoughtful solutions to problems we all face, incredible ideas that work, a blueprint for our own dreams and a way to make America better.  The country survives and thrives because of all those names we don’t know, ordinary people who live life with passion, who succeed not just on talent and hard work, but curiosity and imagination.

Bob's speech will show - step by step - how you can teach your students to quickly find fascinating stories  and make them memorable:

*  The truck driver who taught microsurgery.

*  The fourteen year old who invented television.

*  The brothers who searched for sixty years until they found what the Navy could not – their father’s lost submarine.

Most breaking news these days comes from cell phones pictures, Twitter and journalists who travel in herds, trailing politicians or camped out at big stories, pouncing on problems to repeat over and over.  They offer up celebrity experts for solutions, the people who spend their busy days spouting opinions to cameras, while others in the shadows quietly make America work.  Bob will teach you how to look for those seemingly ordinary people who live the values our country cherishes.  They will help your student's reporting stand out.

Telling tales on television is a bit like writing on smoke.  After a brief mention, they drift away, but the lessons these people impart will linger.  That's why Bob has spent his life seeking solutions from people who are seldom asked, shining a light in neglected corners, revealing answers that others rush past.  Wisdom doesn’t always wear a suit.

Podium Session: Dale Kunkel, Ph.D., University of Arizona; Linking Children and Media Research to Public Policy Debates

Over the past several decades,  a number of children and media policies have been adopted requiring educational programming, restricting advertising practices, and protecting children from violent depictions.  All of these topic areas have been informed by evidence provided from Dr. Kunkel's research program.  This presentation surveys these accomplishments and distills lessons for the effective use of communication research to influence public policy.

Dale Kunkel earned his Ph.D. from the Annenberg School of Communication at the University of Southern California, with a minor in Child Development.  He served as a Congressional Science Fellow in 1984-85, and then held faculty positions at Indiana University and the University of California, Santa Barbara before moving to the University of Arizona in 2004. His studies examine children and media content and effects issues in such areas as media violence and sex, advertising to children, and educational programming.  He has received more than $5 million in research funding from such organizations as the National Cable Television Association, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the Kaiser Family Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  He has delivered invited testimony at hearings before the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives, Federal Communications Commission and Federal Trade Commission on roughly two dozen occasions over the past 25 years.

Building Media in the Cloud

An effective transition from analog to digital involves changes to workflows that take advantage of the resources the non-linear, digital world has to offer. In order to accommodate this, IT staff who normally work outside the video domain need to become involved in the process. To the IT manager, the large video files that need to be moved around might be an annoyance. In order to avoid a messy collision between the broadcast side of the facility and the IT department there are some important things to consider when planning for and implementing digital workflows. Central to the planning of the new IT centric broadcast workflow is the content storage management system that will be the pivot point for content as it moves from point to point. If well planned and implemented, the CSM system will improve workflows and separate the movement of video content from other mission critical IT facilities.

As CTO at Front Porch Digital, Brian Campanotti is leading industry advancement in global content storage management (CSM), media asset management (MAM), migration, and preservation solutions. He has made innovations in the area of cloud-based solutions for handling “big data” targeted at content owners and media companies, and was one of the primary inventors of the Archive eXchange Format (AXF).

As such, he continues his work as a founding member of the SMPTE AXF committee. Mr. Campanotti and his team have won Emmy® Awards for their work in videotape collection preservation technologies and for innovation in serial digital video technology.

3D Cinematography/Videography Demonstration

For educators of new media the teaching of 3D storytelling fundamentals requires a completely new way of seeing and doing. This brief 3D camera and story workshop will look at the conceits and fundamental teaching differences between conventional 2D and 3D instruction. We will explore the story implications of a camera's interaxial distance, lens focal length, convergence and divergence settings, and discuss in detail the issues of subject roundness and point of view. We will consider the nature of the 3D volume and audience comfort zone, the use (or non-use) of 2D conceits such as soft-focus and close-ups, and discuss the prospects given the advent of the 3D iPad and mobile phones of a burgeoning non-theatrical 3D universe in for students. The workshop is intended to inspire educators willing and able to grasp the stereo gold ring. Panasonic cameras will be available for hands-on use and experimentation during and after the session.

Creating a Global City through the Global Campus Network

In an increasingly globalized broadcast world, students need to be able to leave their educational institutions with a strong understanding of both their immediate community and the international communities around them. But technological barriers have always prevented meaningful collaboration between universities. Ryerson University, along with partners at AUT University in Auckland, Rutgers University in the United States, and the Danish School of Media and Journalism (Danmarks Medie- og Journalisthøjskole) have partnered to create the first truly collaborative international student perspective of worldwide events and creative endeavors. We are looking for new partners to join the network, and will discuss our successes and challenges in producing our first pilot program in what is developing into an ongoing network of student creation in this session.
