Advanced Projects in Video II (FV4242.01)

Jen Liu

Students will work towards completing one piece or body of work of their own devising during the course of the semester, while participating in weekly critiques of each others’ work.  During this course students will also participate in discussions of readings/screenings, as well as technical workshops – as needed and led by the interests and needs centered in student work in the course.  This course is intended for seventh- and eighth-term students with a Plan concentration in Film/Video who have already taken Advanced Projects in the prior fall, but exceptions may be made by permission of the instructor.  While students will concentrate on their own production and post-production in this course, engaging in connected critical and technical structures to support this, we will also discuss contemporary presentation/exhibition formats, as well as planning for exhibiting work post-graduation.  The class will be concluded with online and in-person screening(s).

Learning Outcomes:
In this term, students will:
- Focus on a significant video production of their own devising;
- Put to use all the tools of pre-production such as storyboarding, budgeting, scheduling, and sound and visual design;
- Put to use all the tools of production and post-production including but not limited to: film/video shooting, sound recording, editing, color grading, and media management;
- Develop their advanced work through both individual meetings with the instructor and presentations to the group;
- Develop a semester-long discourse around the works of fellow students, engaging with thematic texts and screenings to support this development;
- Exhibit their work in an end-of-the-year exhibition/screening.
