Class Description

In this course, students explored various alternatives to traditional narrative and documentary filmmaking, including non-continuity editing, video installation art, and methods for manipulating video file data. 
Using a variety of technology and software, they created three projects designed to teach them these skills while helping them develop their own personal mode of filmmaking. In addition to learning experimental techniques, they also examined the ideas and attitudes upon which the genre is based by watching and discussing numerous works by prominent experimental filmmakers.
