Video is a unique art form, integrating a variety of mediums including the passage of time, performance, sound & music, interactivity, sculpture, writing, and animation. This course will bring into focus what sets it apart from conventional filmmaking. Students are challenged to think abstractly, improve their cinematography & composition, and edit, edit, edit. No experience necessary, but some familiarity with video editing software is helpful. The instructor will provide examples of contemporary video artists in lectures. There will be an emphasis on ongoing critique, with flexibility toward project development, depending on students' goals. Students must bring a digital camera with video function, and an external hard drive or flash drive. Open to students in grades 10-12.
