INTDS 2500 Motion, Matter & Meaning

This course focuses on narrative and non-linear time-based work - specifically, digital filmmaking.  Digital filmmaking incorporates the language of cinema, stretching back to the early 1900's, but is not limited to movies; in a contemporary context the medium can be used to tell stories, real or imagined, keep a journal,or to perform for or interact with the viewer. The context in which media is viewed or experienced has a profound effect on how it is read.  As many contemporary artists are demonstrating, digital video can be a compelling medium when combined or installed with other media.  Students will explore all applications of digital filmmaking to an interdisciplinary practice, while gaining a solid technical and formal foundation. Digital Narratives is a prerequisite to this course.
