The goal of this class is to introduce you to the basic technical skills you need to work in the video medium, including: cameras, tripods, microphones, lights, and Final Cut Pro. You will be expected to master these skills, and demonstrate this mastery through the in-class and out-of-class assignments. Additionally, you will be exposed to an abridged history of video art - marking video as a distinct medium from film - through screenings and selected readings.

Course Objectives:
  • Demonstrate a basic understanding of video cameras, microphones, lighting, and Final Cut Pro editing
  • Learn to articulate both a verbal and written analysis of video
  • Develop a basic understanding of the socio-politcal climate from which video art emerged.
