This intermediate studio/seminar course centers on the history, theory, and technique of using found footage material in essayistic moving image work. Students will complete a series of essayistic film and video projects exploring approaches and techniques including but not limited to non-narrative, political, personal, abstract, structural, and materialist forms. The course will contextualize contemporary practice within the history of avant-garde, underground, and “non-fiction” film through screenings, theoretical and historical readings, and discussions.
