Media Arts/Video

You will produce the following:

1. A silent film

2. A commercial

3. A music video

4. A video of your own choosing

5. As well as many other smaller projects

We will also watch and critique not only your work and the work of your students but also the work of professionals. Required film studies include The Truman Show (1999) Weir, Reel Injun (2009) Diamond as well as study in advertising, small group processes and the 1st amendment but the course is primarily experiential and involves about 80% lab time. Students not interested in video making should think twice before enrolling.
