Advanced Projects in Video II (FV4242.01)

Jen Liu

Students will work towards completing one significant/thesis work or body of work of their own devising during the course of the semester. Emphasis will be on depth of content, refining aesthetic, conceptual, and technical approach, and in-depth peer critiques of works in progress.  This is the “second half” of Advanced Projects.  The first half (fall 2019) emphasized research, storyline development, and other aspects of pre-production.  In this second half (spring 2020), students should have a solid idea of concept, and production/shooting should already be underway and/or complete.  Together, we will look at different aspects of post-production, from different models of editing, correcting color and sound, and methods of final presentation, from cinematic screening to multimedia installation and online platforms. We will also address production issues (shooting, lighting, sound, etc) on a per-student basis, based on the needs of their own specific projects – and address practicalities such as the Senior Show and building a moving image portfolio.
