For students who have completed Film Workshop I or Video I, this class will explore the filmmaking process in greater detail with particular attention to the use of the still image within a time-based medium. Whether constructing a dramatic narrative, documentary, animation or experimental film in either a single channel or installation based environment, the still image will be considered for all its formal, conceptual, and theoretical reverberations. Utilizing a variety of texts and screenings we will explore the "interconnectedness of the two media." Students can work in digital, analogue, or a combination of both. Instructor's permission is required.
