Why Digital Media?
Digital Media is such a key component to our every day lives and is a great tool to promote change on a local to global scale. It easily allows for people to interact and collaborate with one another. From a creative point of view, Digital Media makes any project possible. With VR you can travel to a dystopian world and paint in 3D, with Adobe software you can bring to life a doodle you made during lunch, and that is barely scratching the surface. There are countless of creative opportunities with Digital Media, and there is so much that has yet to be discovered and created.
