      REG#21676

      For about forty years, writer/artists have been using the computer as a media for creating fictional and dramatic experiences. There are many names for this relatively new and rather sprawling and unstable genre – Electronic Literature, Digital Interactive Storytelling, Games, Intermedia Performance, Interactive Narrative, Hypertext, Location-based fiction. Practitioners variously focus on visuals, writing, coding. Delivery systems are flexible and diverse: from mobile phones to art installation to augmented reality. This course focuses on this expanding and morphing territory. Students will read theoretical texts, analyze work, and experiment with the creation of their own fictional and literary experiences in and around computer media.

    • DMS 603 Innovative Film and Video

      Waham :: We 6:00PM-9:40PM :: CFA 286
      REG#21265

      An advanced production course that focuses on the learning, comprehension and creation of the new unconventional narrative, fiction and non-fiction hybrid moving image, docu-drama, experimental and poetic personal-essay cinema. This hands-on studio course explores the meaning and methods of innovative film/video techniques, as utilized by contemporary artists working across a variety of genres. Through screenings, in-class discussions, readings, workshops, exercises and a final project, the emphasis in the course is on providing specific creative, aesthetic and conceptual contexts for experimenting with the medium, thereby provoking a dialogue surrounding the filmmaker’s intent, goals and audience expectations – while at the same time enriching the technical and expressive aspects of their filmmaking processes.Graduate student filmmakers will closely examine technical concerns in lighting, cinematography, sound and montage and will investigate a broad range of production and post-production techniques while exploring the practice and theories of films and filmmakers that challenge dominant commercial storytelling.

      Lab fee is $125
