Finished design project


I’ve attached our final designs here, so please enjoy and feel free to share your comment for future improvement!

Besides from writing, designing is what I’d like to do in my free time. Recently, my friend and I had been assigned to work on a design project that we just managed to finish this afternoon.

Being year 3 students at the Department of Media and Communication, we all have to join a group of two people to shoot a short documentary under varied themes. This year, we all worked under the theme related to Khmer Rouge Regime called “Until Now”. There are only 19 students in our batch 8th, so 9 films were produced and also brought to screen in 3 provinces in the Kingdom: Siem Reap, Battambang, and Kampot.

From those screening, we received plenty of comments and suggestions from our audiences and at some points, we’ve decided to cut or add more visual footage.

These films are also needed a DVD case with Cover Design, Label, and description paper. This come to our task!

My friend, Lang Mesa, and I was assigned to responsible for designing and doing PR tasks. Though we had some hard times changing design layouts according to classmates and lecturer’s taste, we really enjoy it and also feel that we’ve learnt more from this project.

European Film Festival 2011


European Film Festival, a yearly films screening event, will be hosted again at Department of Media and Communication (RUPP campus) from 10 to 11 June 2011.

5 movies from various countries in Europe will be screened in this two-day event, which is open for public.

Every year, before screening each film, we have ambassador to briefly talk about the film from his/her country and to answer audiences’ questions after the screening session.

What special about this year is that all films were dubbed into Khmer language. If you cannot understand Khmer language, don’t be worry because you still can enjoy English subtitle.

Hope to see all you at DMC on the screening day!

The 2nd launching of KON Magazine


With the initiative of our professor, Tilman Baumgärtel, and all year III students from the Department of Media and Communcation (DMC), the magazine “KON. The Cinema of Cambodia” was successfully launched again at French Cultural Center (CCF) after its first launching at Meta House on October 15, 2010.

This evening, we screened 12 clips taken from some movies produced during 1960s and 1970s such as Panchapor Tevi and Preah Tenvong, and some contemporary movies like Mother’s Heart and Lost Love.

It was an amazing event to have Dy Saveth, a big star during 1960s and 1970s, join and share her experiences of being an actress during that time.
