Post-Production Intensive (FV4310.01)

Mariam Ghani

This semester-length, two-credit course will take students through the process of revising and refining a single project through multiple iterations, based on peer critique and instructor feedback. We will dig deep into the logics, techniques, and ever-evolving tools of editing, and also make space for experiments with animated elements, multi-channel audio/video configurations, and work that moves between different modes of presentation for different sites and audiences. We will also look at a range of examples to analyze how editing styles shift over time and work in the formation of movements and genres. Students should enter the course with a project already in progress or ready to be edited by week two. Collaborative projects are encouraged.

Learning Outcomes:
Across this term, students will:
● Develop a deeper understanding of the formal logics of editing
● Learn best practices for post-production workflows

response to notes/critique
