Class Details

This is a writing workshop for the time-based arts. The course will focus more on the process of writing and artmaking than on the final product of a film or video. We will study the use of language in a variety of kinds of film, video, and performance-based artworks. We will study examples in avant garde film, video art, performance art, narrative cinema, and essay films. Students will generate monologues, voiceovers, screenplays and avant garde forms, and will also write several response papers about the use of language in film, video, and performance.
