Students in the Adobe Partners by Design community recently participated in a creative project sure to challenge and inspire. Through the Adobe Partners by Design program, students from three countries including Australia, Netherlands, and the United States collaborated on a single finished piece.

Each participating group of students were invited to contribute their example of creative exploration in tandem. Students created their segment, then secretly shared only their single final frame with the following group of students. The last frame from one group of students, served as the following institution’s inspirational starting point. The students continued to experiment through the school year, until all segments were linked together to create the video.

Adobe is proud to foster global collaborations among students and educators. The project was welcomed by professors as a way to engage students in small groups, while providing an experimental and globally creative process. Participating Professor Penny Ann Dolin added the project to ASU’s Advanced Video class, to allow for more student involvement. Professor Suzanne Johnson of Full Sail University also commented on the project’s creative versatility, “The project has the possibility of attracting students from all over campus.”
