Course Description

This studio course focuses on video production and uses a variety of digital media tools for creative practice. This course focuses on ideas of space and place in and uses locations in the city of Segovia as starting points for investigating these ideas. The format for the class includes lectures and discussions, lab time, and technical training in video production as needed. By the end of the course, students will have made several video pieces together and individually that explores Segovia as a site.

The principles and techniques of moving image production are addressed in screenings, readings, and specific production projects. These are then used to investigate ideas of narrative and place when it is represented on screen. We will also look at concepts of site specificity as reflected in a variety of digital media. Locations in and around Segovia will be used as the starting points for developing projects and investigating ideas of place. The course allows students to gain experience with many facets of video production while exploring these themes. Students will have access to professional-level production facilities, providing a high degree of flexibility to engage with the ideas in the course.

Students will learn how to develop and analyze ideas of site and place in multiple ways. They will also become well versed in the development and production of site-based video projects, including pre-production planning, recording on site, and editing and post-production techniques.

Students should be familiar with general computer usage, but no prior experience with video production is required.
