The work of Computational Media major, Austin Gasaway, garnered five Pixie Awards for the Georgia Tech Cable Network (GTCN).
Sponsored by the American Pixel Academy (APA), a coalition of professionals and educators in the field of electronic moving pixels, the Pixie Awards honor outstanding work in animation, effects, and motion graphics in the U.S. and Canada. Gasaway is a student assistant at GTCN and worked under the direction of GTCN's Scott Sergent on projects ranging from visual effects to motion graphics to opening titles.
“I plan to pursue motion graphic design as a career," said Gasaway. "After graduation I want to go freelance and design graphics for various companies around the world. I sometimes think about the work I do at GTCN as practice for the real world, but I know it is more than that. As I am working, I am also enhancing my resume, building my portfolio, and most importantly, having fun."
Some of the award-winning work appears in the student-produced TV series, “Kings of the Court.” Computational Media is a joint major in the IAC School of Literature, Communication, and Culture and the College of Computing.
