🖊️ 8th November 2022 – 29th November 2022, Online Course
The four-week Experimental & Personal Filmmaking is an immersive online course that exposes you to alternative film and video history, artist practice, and methods. In addition, it provides you with the knowledge to begin making your own experimental media.
Through viewings, lectures, discussion, and reading, students will survey how filmmakers and artists working in film, video, and digital media have experimented with the moving image to push the boundaries of the medium and their perception of the world around them. The course will consider how essential films and filmmakers explored film and video’s material and conceptual possibilities to reshape our notion of what film can be. In addition to looking closely at the images in these works, students will also listen closely to how sound design has frequently played a role in the impact of these creations.
