CAMS 288: Experimental Film & Video Production

A process-based production course focused on the conceptual and technical concerns of experimental film, video, and other time-based arts. We will explore the personal, cultural, political, and formal/aesthetic aspects of experimental media through readings, writings, screenings, and the production of experimental media projects. Key course concerns include medium specificity and relationships between sound and image, form and content, and theory and practice. We will consider “experimental” as a working practice rather than a genre--a way of testing hypotheses and a process of discovery. Prerequisite: Cinema and Media Studies 111 or instructor permission
