Experimental Film & Video Production is 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: Prerequisite: Cinema and Media Studies 111 and one additional Cinema and Media Studies course or instructor permission
