Fall 2018: Massachusetts College of Art and Design Photography Department:
MPPH-336/536: From Still to Moving Image
This course is designed to develop students' fluency in moving image practices, with an emphasis on digital video. Drawing and expanding on their existing skills as lens-based image-makers, students complete a series of moving image assignments culminating in a final video project. We will consider the various ways in which photography and video intersect in the contemporary art world, with relevant screenings of diverse examples of time-based media works. Technical demonstrations and assignments are aimed at increasing skills in video and sound capture, non-linear editing, and preparing video works for screening and exhibition.
