Prerequisites: All OF THE FOLLOWING: ARTDES 265: Intro to Video: Digital Cinematography & Editing.

Description: This course is perfect for video experimentalists who also care about precision camerawork and editing. The overarching question of the course is: How can techniques from film and television be co-opted to serve the unconventional needs of fine artists and designers? Using iterative processes, students will propose, work and rework independent projects with an eye towards building a portfolio-ready body of work. Class assignments will deepen knowledge gained in the Intro to Video course (ARTDES 265). MSMT will focus on advanced camera operations and editing processes including complex compositing, small-scale projection mapping, color grading, temporal manipulation, and the creation of custom camera rigs. Throughout the course, presentations and readings will introduce students to exemplary video works that were produced for an array of purposes including: poetic expression, social critique, advocacy, spatial analysis, and time arts documentation.

Frequency: This course is typically offered in the winter term of every academic year, though scheduling may vary according to future term circumstances.
