Higher Resolution (FV4102.02)

Karthik Pandian

In this 7-week video production workshop, students will collaborate to make a film that explores the double meaning of resolution –  video resolution and conflict resolution. After watching historical film precedents such as Abbas Kiarostami’s Close-up, we will devise and fully realize a narrative short that centers around a conflict using both 16mm film and 4K video. Students will be trained in these two formats and will need to deeply consider the relationship between film, video, truth and justice. In order to play the necessary roles in production and post-production, we are seeking students with prior experience in directing, acting, writing, cinematography, lighting, editing, sound, costume, set, props, makeup and motion graphics.

Prerequisites: Introduction to Video and permission of instructor. A one paragraph letter of interest must be submitted to kpandian@bennington.edu by November 6th describing your motivation for enrolling in this course.
