Visual design. Social good.

Dear makers of Dexter’s “killer breakfast” sequence, you’ve been torturing my students for weeks. The latest challenge in our Digital Storytelling course was to remake  Digital Kitchen‘s, Emmy Award winning main title “Killer Breakfast” from Showtime’s Dexter.

Although challenging to execute (there are no film majors in this course), this project undoubtedly built skills in:

  • precise video capturing and editing
  • designing shots and mood
  • creative problem solving
  • close team collaboration

We recently screened the videos – with impromptu bursts of applause, homemade chocolate chip cookies, laughter, and requests to watch them a second time. A side note: after agonizing over this project for weeks, no one ever wants to ever hear the song again.

Here are our four remakes:

    What a shame, the theme song is so good…
