The primary objective of the animations was to create a world without symbols that is depicted through shape, color, and form.
The concepts involving shape, color, and form are personally constructed and firmly grounded in mathematics and science.
The discussion will cover:

Off the MAP Event: “Finding a Voice” Terry Curtis Fox

Sunday, March 20th 2pm
Hollywood screenwriter Terry Curtis Fox, visiting artist in Western Carolina University’s department of English, will discuss the challenges of writing for series television Sunday, March 20, during the third presentation in his semester-long series of lectures, and the first to be held in Asheville.
Fox, a member of the board of directors of the Writers Guild of America who has written for “Diagnosis: Murder,” “Hill Street Blues” and “Stargate SG-1,” will speak on the topic “Finding a Voice” at 2 p.m. at the Asheville Brewing and Pizza Co. on Merrimon Avenue. The program is open to the public free of charge.
“Terry will offer insight into how writers define a series’ characters and how they discover the tone of a new show,” said Jack Sholder, a motion picture director, writer and editor who joined Western’s faculty in September as professor of digital motion pictures and video. “He will explore the interaction between the show’s creators and staff, between writers and directors, and between writers and the star. He’ll discuss what a network and production studio expect when a new series goes on the air, and what makes a show difficult and exciting to write.
“In other words, once you’ve achieved the near-impossible goal of getting a show on the schedule, what then?” said Sholder, who directed “The Hidden,” “Nightmare on Elm Street 2,” “Renegades” and HBO’s “By Dawn’s Early Light,” and who won an Emmy Award for his editing work on “3-2-1 Contact.”
The classes are part of a new motion picture studies concentration and a proposed digital motion picture production major being developed at the university.
