IML seeks projects

The Institute for Multimedia Literacy within the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California is seeking project proposals for exemplary Sophie 2.0 projects to be produced in collaborations between scholars and IML staff. If you have a project that would benefit from the unique compositional affordances of Sophie, and you wouldn't mind having these become showcase projects on the Sophie 2.0 Web site, please contact Holly Willis. Include a project description and explain why Sophie 2.0 would enhance the project.
