Instructor: Angel Nevarez

Introduction to Video and Related Media covers the technical and conceptual variables and strategies inherent in contemporary video art practice. This course will look to an analysis of the structural concepts of time, space, perspective, and sound. Building on the art historical legacy specific to the moving image and video, this course will also consider self-exploration, performance, social critique, and the manipulation of raw experience into aesthetic form. In addition, practical knowledge of Final Cut Pro, lighting, video capturing and editing, and montage are highlighted. Presentation and critique of student work, technical workshops, screenings, and reading discussions will be included. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.
