Critical Video: Theory & Practice

This course will introduce students to critical video-the use of documentary, ethnographic, and research-based video to investigate and critique contemporary culture. The class offers students a theoretical overview of documentary video, a set of conceptual tools to analyze video, and an introduction to the practice of video production for small and mobile screens. Students will apply texts on video's history, culture and distribution, as well as on the ethical challenges of video production, to their own research-based video project. No prior experience in video production is required.
