The Open Studio is the culmination of a three-week course in multimedia conducted by film maker Nicole Marie Fuller. Julia's Gallery students participated in hands-on projects that focused on advanced techniques in iMovie. The students learned about photography, film making, and media projections. Each student was guided through his or her own unique project, from idea conception, to design, to completion and finally to the installation for the Open Studio.
