Advanced video production, installation, and exhibition design introduces advanced strategies of image and sound design from both a technical and conceptual perspective.

Storytelling is the linchpin that unites these seemingly disparate forms. Visual semiotics and media analysis, alongside installation and exhibition design offer a perspective from which to consider how meaning is constructed when you engage across different forms of art production such as within individual art works, media installations, and the design of exhibitions. Each of these forms implies a different spatial configuration and it is the relationship between the art work and the space where it is displayed that determines how the work is understood by a viewer.

Covers visual and textual analysis for interrogating art works, pre-production planning (scripting + storyboarding for the shoot), exhibition design histories in relation to art movements, as well as the refinement of the use of digital tools. These tools include single and multi-channel editing techniques, designing and shooting for visual effects and compositing, production and post-production work flow, as well as sound design and execution.

Context provided by viewing and discussion of contemporary media installations, art works. exhibitions, and other audio-visual formats. Students work individually and/or in groups to develop skills in media literacy and visual communication.

Additional work required of students taking the graduate version. Lab fee required. Limited to 20.
