An introduction into the wide spectrum of moving image art, this course focuses on developing the necessary skills to create short experimental films directly from home. Using various image-capturing devices, such as phones, DSLRs, point-and-shoot cameras and more, this class will examine the potential to construct both abstract and narrative stories through creative image-making techniques. In addition to original recordings, found footage and audio will be explored as a movie-making tool. Students will be introduced to the editing process using Adobe Premiere Pro and will be guided through a fundamental editing workflow.

This class is for beginners and those with previous experience who want to expand their moving image toolbox. The course looks at film through the lens of fine art, and students are encouraged to take creative risks.
