Music Video Production

Spring 2020

Taught By: Mario Paoli

Section: A

CRN: 3926

Credits: 3

Music video has roots in everything from the Avant-Garde to the Hollywood musical. Though mostly used as marketing tools for selling popular music, music videos are a curiously innovative commercial form. Incorporating techniques of narrative film, documentary, surrealism, expressionism, animation and more, the music video is a stylistic playground in which we revel in two essential cinematic ingredients: rhythm and motion. During the first part of the semester, students will hone their technical skills with video camera and post production exercises that exploit the theory of montage and the image as a two dimensional surface, creating interesting juxtapositions of picture and sound, using effects, graphics and titles. The midterm will consist of a research project and presentation. The emphasis is on historical context with an eye toward discovering inspiring sources to which we can pay homage.

Pre-Requisite: Media Design (NMDS 5008) or instructor permission. Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
