Tamer Shaaban, February 2011
Tamer participated in my freshman composition course Art, Technology and Creative Production at GA Tech in spring of 2008. From the start, he expressed an interest in acquiring skills related to video production and digital storytelling. In conjunction with class activities, Tamer created videos that documented his college experience, works that extended classroom explorations of performance events from an academic setting into the realm of everyday life. Following the class, Tamer continued to perfect his video production skills. Now in his senior year at the University, Tamer has made a series of works that respond to and comment upon the political crisis in Egypt. The videos demonstrate his ability to compose and present compelling rhetorical arguments in multimedia formats. Here is a sample of Tamer’s work:
