In this production-oriented course, a series of assignments guide students through different approaches to experimental moving image making. The focus is on expanding the foundation of their production experience by challenging linear narrative and documentary conventions. Students experiment with non-narrative approaches to content, structure, and technique emphasizing a range of approaches to video production. Investigations of space and performance are informed by poetry, literature, sound, color, fragmentation, and abstraction. Building upon the historical legacy of the moving image, students incorporate self-exploration, social critique, and manipulation of raw experience into an aesthetic form. Further development of critiquing skills and survey study of the independent media and video fields are also essential components of the course.
