Brian and the Wiz – Brian, a fairly self assured student, meets The Wiz and learns he has an inner critic.
Project: We created short videos that use animation and video to help advisees and other students deal with their inner critic.
Description: There are many triggers for students to go negative on themselves: academic struggles, interview woes, and failed tryouts for clubs and fraternities. When these voices get louder, the so-called “inner critic” starts to flourish.
To help students cope, the Dyson Media Innovation Group has created two short animations that make for a great “study break” that can serve as circuit breaker for the spiral effect of the inner critic. Check them out!
The animations feature interviews of successful Cornellians done by Werner Zorman (Associate Director of Cornell Engineering Leadership program), animation created by student artist, Naima Reddick ’16, narration by student Jeremy Freeman ’15 and production/editing by Jamie Kalousdian and Manuel Lora (Members of the Dyson Media Innovation Group).
