(Un)Coding Video is a practice-based course where students will learn basic programming skills through the medium of video. The course requires no prior programming experience. In the traditions of experimental video art practice, the video element provides a theme for the class, making it relevant to filmmakers and other media practitioners through thinking about the materiality of video and its underlying code. Assignments include: video montage and collage in the browser, video glitch, programming browser plugins/extensions, and working with video databases. We will use Processing, html/css/javascript, php and mySQL.

This is a hybrid seminar/production course as may be counted as either designation toward a student's Media Studies MA or Media Management MS degree.
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.
