This course explores more sophisticated forms of image making, editing, and theory.

Students screen and discuss documentary and video art works, and study writing/criticism in the field, focusing on moving image theories, concepts, strategies, and a wide range of aesthetic concerns.

The class will engage in various aspects of production and approaches to cinematography, sound, and editing/compositing. Participants work on a project-oriented basis that includes critiques and training in video production skills.

Students should be both self-directed and interested in developing a support system for producing each other’s work. Students will be evaluated based on video projects (fiction or non-fiction), critical writings, class participation, and presentations.
