Class Details

Video is an introduction to the moving image as a fine arts medium. The course will involve hands–on production as well as contemporary screenings and readings that demonstrate elements of the medium. The course will look at basics of directing actors, sound design, exhibition context, on-line distribution, documentary, high and low production values, cultural appropriation, screenwriting, and film analysis. The course will introduce shooting and editing skills, including preproduction skills such as storyboarding and scheduling, production skills such as directing, shot organization, shot composition, shot lists, lighting, sound recording and postproduction editing skills in a range of styles. We will focus on film production as a feasible practice, set safety and a conduit towards personal expression. Some of the artist work we will examine will include Dee Rees, John Krokidas, Rick Alverson, Jonathan Caouette, Jennie Livingston, Christopher Nolan and David Byrne, among others.
