Intro to Experimental Video Art

Intro to Experimental Video Art


New Media for artists and creators.

This 4-week class will provide students with a practical foundation for creating digital video for installation, performance, web, or screen.

In this digital arts course, students will gain a comprehensive overview of the experimentation, execution, and theory of contemporary video art through the use of non-linear editing platforms such as Adobe Premiere Pro and software such as Adobe After Effects and Adobe Photoshop. 

Each class consists of a weekly curated screening of relevant works, class discussion + dissection, and hands-on instructional learning for students to gain conceptual knowledge and technical skill for non-narrative digital filmmaking.

Topics covered include:

  • Digital video post-production: sound, motion control, and non-linear editing.

  • Techniques of assembling footage

  • Methods for manipulating the aesthetics of footage

  • Creation and execution of your own original video art project(s)
