Introduction to Video (FV2303.01)

Jen Liu

This hybrid production course introduces in-person and remote students to the fundamentals of working in video and the language of film. Drawing on the energy, intensity and criticality of avant-garde film and contemporary video art practices, students will complete a series of projects exploring dimensions of cinematography, mise-en-scène, editing and sound design before producing a final self-determined project. Concepts crucial to time-based media such as apparatus, montage and identification will be introduced through screenings, discussions and texts by a diverse range of artists, filmmakers, and theorists, with a particular interest in the evolution of film and 19th century moving image into video and modern media.  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.
