About

Dr. Glenn Stillar is the Director of the Digital Arts Communication program in the Faculty of Arts, University of Waterloo. His research explores both the theory and practice of how we tell stories with digital media to entertain, inform, persuade, and involve viewers. He is particularly interested in the constantly evolving role of video in communications, given communicating via video is now as important as, and nearly as widespread as, text-based communications. He has directed and produced a wide range of film, video, and audio productions, ranging from research documentation to feature films to multimedia art installations. In addition to his interests in multimedia theory and production, Dr.┬áStillar has an extensive background in social semiotics, discourse analysis, and linguistics and has published widely in those fields.
