This white paper is submitted to fulfill the requirements for the Master of Arts of the Gradate Center, City University of New York.   This requirement accompanies the video production “Threats of Sea Level Rise.”  The initial project underwent several modifications, specifically its duration; the goal was create a video of five minutes to keep viewer interest.  This Project is prepared with the advice of Professor Wendy Luttrell.  Indeed, her experience doing and advising visual research was a great help to me.  Thus, this white paper describes the process of research, production, and the challenges faced to do a video as scholarship.
            The transformation of knowledge into visuals relies on academic capacity, technical skills, and aesthetic choices.  I hope this visual presentation about sea level rise can represent my academic capacity as a product of my studies at The Graduate Center, but also on the whole CUNY system, because I started to study in BMCC, got a B.A. in City College, and I am proudly presenting the requirements of The Graduate Center to get a Master of Arts.  As an ESL student and coming from Guatemala, a country constantly having natural disasters, natural catastrophes are part of my ethos.  This academic project allows me to show my multidisciplinary grasp of the ecological and geopolitical issues that are the subject of study of my individualized track.  This white paper follows the format already established by the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program (MALS).
