Changes in media technologies over the past several years have resulted in a redefining of the boundaries between video, and the other media arts. This course will serve as an introduction to the working methods, theories, processes and programs used in binding those relationships.
The emphasis of this course will be divided into several segments with portions devoted to the viewing historical time-art works, as well as technical lectures on media production and advanced techniques in DVD authoring.
This course is intended for all levels of students, by exposing them to particular strategies, tools and techniques that could provide useful insights into creating their own projects related to the production of moving images (ranging from short film subjects and documentaries, to purely abstract pieces, video installations and inter-media works).
General themes to be covered:
• Techniques in the composition of moving images
• Mapping the moving image to sonic gestures
• Video construction strategies and media generation techniques using both software and hardware
• Excerpted history of video (re)synthesis
• Advanced techniques in DVD authoring
