Digital Video Production

Fall 2021

Taught By: Michele Beck

Section: A

CRN: 3370

Credits: 3

This course explores the 16mm Bolex camera's wide-ranging image-making possibilities. Using techniques that date back to the birth of cinema and the trick films of Georges Melies, students learn to create in-camera effects and "ready-made" projects that go straight from the camera to the screen. Assignments alternate between the technical and the thematic. Shooting techniques (such as double exposure, matte shots, optical distortion, single frame and time exposure, and hand developing) are explored in class; outside of class, students create short projects based on themes (such as cine-portrait, "camera roll," and image-sound interaction). Historical background is provided through screenings of films by Georges Melies, Hans Richter, Marie Menken, Stan Brakhage, Rose Lowder, Bruce Bailey, Jim Hubbard, and Rosalind Schneider. Each student is expected to complete three projects, one of which will be selected for a final screening. No previous film experience is required.

Necessary camera and editing equipment is provided by The New School. Please note that students are expected to purchase film stock and to cover their own costs for developing and supplies.

Spring 2021

Taught By: Michele Beck

Section: A

CRN: 1274

Credits: 3

With digital cameras and computer editing equipment widely accessible, the possibility of creating engaging, professional-quality moving images is within virtually everyone's reach. Digital video is an exciting and powerful medium of expression, but knowing how to use the tools isn't enough to enable you to create a coherent and articulate video project. This course can help artists in any genre create works that are both technically and conceptually sound. Students work toward this goal by learning digital video editing and using it to experience the power of editing as creative expression. They are also introduced to production techniques, including the use of the digital camera, storyboarding, and basic lighting and sound. Several short video projects are completed during the term. There are no prerequisites, but familiarity with the Macintosh is assumed. Students have access to New School digital video cameras and editing software but must have a firewire drive.
