Welcome to the Pacific New Media blog site. Here you will find featured articles, interviews, photo galleries, and information on new and expanded programs. As our valued audience, we hope to inspire, instruct, and encourage you to take advantage of the wide range of classes and workshops that we offer throughout the year.
We are celebrating our 25th year of service to the Hawai‘i community. Then, as now, Pacific New Media commits to bringing to Honolulu the very best faculty, on both a regional and national level, to upgrade participants’ skills, deepen their knowledge, and open their creativity.
As part of the 25th anniversary, we intend to celebrate with exceptional workshops, public talks, and exhibitions, all involving key artists and industry leaders.
Beginning in summer of 1986 as the Film and Video Summer Institute, Pacific New Media celebrates twenty-five years of programming. Over the years, we have brought to Honolulu many guiding lights—innovators in film/video, photography, digital media, and web design. We have seen many changes in the field, due to the unprecedented advances in digital technologies. It is a vastly different world now, and many of the artists that we have hosted have been instrumental in the ongoing development of digital media. They have literally changed the world. We feel honored to have them as part of our faculty.
Please feel free to comment, ask questions, or suggest programming ideas. We will check all feedback periodically to insure that we can adequately respond to your training and educational needs.
