Kate Purdie

This production course will explore moving image portraits and character studies through screenings and projects in documentary, narrative and experimental forms. Using observation and investigation the class will create portraits and discuss issues of representation, authorship and intimacy. We will examine Cinema-verite portraits and experimental self-reflections and character development in performance art and narrative films. In addition, we’ll read non-fiction profiles, study fictional characters in prose and explore the traditions of the portrait in art history.
