who we are

Jasmin Sung
jsung@email.com

I was born and raised in Germany by Chinese parents. In 1983, I came to the United States and studied electronics, video production and theology.

By the early '90's, I had stumbled across a subject that seemed to unite these disparate interests: media literacy. After meeting Dr. Renee Hobbs, and joining, on her recommendation, the Felton Scholar program on media literacy , I worked closely with her on a media literacy curriculum she was developing for the Discovery Channel.

Since, my video production work is always informed by a need to analyze the things we view and the industry that produces what we consume. Technology is changing at a mind-boggling speed, but our need to develop critical skills so we can remain literate and discriminating citizens remains a constant.

To keep up with technological developments, I have been turning my attention to distance learning and multimedia web-based technologies, which requires me to learn new software continuously, which plays to my love of electronics and technology.

I have recently started my own company, Web Media Motion, whose work dovetails beautifully with that of Blinktank. Web Media Motion creates videos, virtual reality and animation for the web.
