About the Course
Take advantage of the winter months at home! In this online course, students will create collages from existing video footage. Possible screen-based outputs include original stories, experimental documentaries or essays, and personal memorabilia. Activities will include viewings of exemplary works by accomplished artists; brief readings in the theory of montage (the assemblage or editing of film/video); discussion of sources, strategies, and protocol for legally accessing existing materials; and basic instruction in the use of digital editing tools. The course accommodates any level of experience in video production, from absolute beginner to established professional.
