Course description

This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

This course examines the video essay and its corresponding or emerging forms in videographic criticism, the essay film, and written essays, including personal narrative, creative nonfiction, and hybrid texts. Students explore source material and develop media competencies that encompass video, sound, image and text in order to critically analyze content that explores dimensions of culture. In addition, students collaborate on lo-fi and more developed video projects that explore the formal dimensions of narrative and criticism. While maintaining a focus on the video essay as a form of critique, students address broader concerns about how video essays reflect their role as producers and consumers of media forms.
