Staff members from two departments joined together on Thursday to participate in a Global Cardboard Challenge, an event inspired by the Imagination Foundation and the Global Day of Play.
Full Sail’s Cardboard Challenge was the brainchild of members of the Media Communications bachelor of science degree program, who invited staff members from the Psychology of Play department to join in.
Based on the theme, “When I was a kid,” staff members used cardboard, plastic cups, and other materials to design a robot, a car, a plane, a puppet theater, and an oddball assortment of other creations.
The Imagination Foundation was founded by filmmaker Nirvan Mullick, creator of the short film Caine’s Arcade. Mullick’s film highlights the eternal optimism and creativity of a young boy, Caine Monroy, and has sparked a global movement.
“He really was the kind of person we want our grads to be,” says Media Communication Course Director Jason Gillett of Mullick. “He was able to take a message and put it in front of millions of people using media creatively.”
