Client: Columbia University in Conjunction with Intelligent Television
Project: Harlem Digital Archive Logo and Film
My Role(s): Creative Director
This short film addresses the potential of a Harlem Digital Archive to allow researchers, educators, and documentarians to draw from Columbia University's extensive collections of Harlem-related material to create interesting new works. The promotional piece debuted at the "Culture, Commerce, and Public Media: A New Forum for Creators" conference at the offices of WNET. The projectís creative concept represents both the pieced-together notion of an archive, as well as the block-by-block diversity and varied history which make Harlem itself so unique. The colors and overall look of the work reference Harlem Jazz and the album covers of bygone days.
