"Luma"
"Luma" is a short animated film from one of IFDM's Student Capstone Projects created this year. 

The University of New Mexico’s Interdisciplinary Film & Digital Media Program (IFDM) hosts its End-of-Semester Student Showcase, featuring student work completed during the Fall 2015 semester, on Saturday, Dec. 5 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at IFDM’s Mesa del Sol facility located at the Aperture Center at Mesa del Sol, 5700B University West Blvd., next to Albuquerque Studios.

The open-format showcase features work produced by IFDM students as part of their Fall 2015 coursework in a variety of new and emerging technologies. Visual Effects, animation, film, game development, interactive and digital design, screenwriting, photography, trans-media and digital media ethics will be represented. IFDM students from every class will be on hand to discuss their projects and areas of study.

UNM’s Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media Program was established in 2007, in response to the New Mexico State Legislature’s Media Industries Strategy Project; a statewide economic initiative to develop a sustainable film and digital media industry in New Mexico. The integrated interdisciplinary academic and research program is designed to give our faculty and students the necessary critical, creative, and technical skills to apply digital technologies in innovative and productive ways. 

The program is unique in that students may pursue their interests in digital media in one of four partnering colleges/schools at UNM (College of Fine Arts, School of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences and Anderson School of Management) with six possible degree options.
