FILMMAKING/VIDEO/INTERDISCIPLINARY Art 145, Introduction to Digital Video
Digital video represents a provocative combination of vernacular and classical styles through its ease of use and its potential for extremely high production values. This class introduces the basic tools of digital video production. Topics include DV camera operation, sound, and Mac-based editing (Final Cut Pro). After students learn these basic techniques, the remainder of the class consists of individual and collaborative assignments that explore the visual language and production challenges of DV. This class is directed to the spatial and visual aspects of the medium rather than the narrative. The class also includes screenings of experimental films, video art, and DV feature films. Enrollment limited to twelve undergraduates. Materials fee: $150.
