This production course introduces students to the fundamentals of working in video and the language of film form. Throughout the term we will screen a broad range of film and video works of genres both familiar and perhaps alien. We will address ideas and techniques spanning storytelling and non-narrative approaches, fiction and nonfiction, abstraction and representation. Students will complete a series of projects exploring dimensions of cinematography, mise-en-scène, video art, archives, montage editing and sound design before producing a final self-determined project. Emphasis on technical instruction, formal experimentation, and critical vocabulary is balanced in order to give students a footing from which to find their own stakes in the medium.
