ARTC344 Video I

Credits: 3
Offered: Fall, Spring
Prerequisite: None

This course introduces the student to the language of video and cinema in a clear manner. It explores the “moving picture” through the analysis of many television and film forms, including fiction, documentary, and commercial. The course has both theoretical and practical components. By doing an “in-depth” study of the work of a television or film director, as well as through practical experience of video workshops, students develop an understanding of the medium and begin to develop a personal approach to the language of moving pictures. Students are divided into groups of three or four. After the introductory phase of the course, each group makes a short video. In addition, each student makes an individual video, and the class works together on a final project. Students learn by experiencing firsthand how to write, shoot, sound-record, and edit a video. The city of Florence provides “sets” and characters and is a challenging and inspiring resource. This course may be repeated once.
