Camagüey, Cuba  An Interactive Documentary

Ralph Vituccio, associate teaching professor in the Entertainment Technology Center, and filmmaker Andres Tapia-Urzua created a transformative documentary-making course that took students to Camagüey, Cuba during spring break. Students from across campus worked together to interview and capture video on a variety of interesting people who live and work in Camagüey, Cuba. The students then got to work reviewing interviews, editing video, developing user interface designs and playtesting user interaction. The course was offered through the Interactive Design, Arts and Technology Network (IDeATe) and English Department.
