AD30400 Video Art
Prof. Fabian Winkler

AD30400 is an introductory class dedicated to the artistic potential of digital video. The class consists of technical workshops (focusing primarily on the video production tools in the Adobe CS suite), creative assignment work and the research, screening, analysis and discussion of existing works related to the field. The class starts with an introduction to the video camera and the digitizing and editing of video footage. In the next step, students explore the use of light and learn chromakeying and compositing techniques. After the acquisition of basic techniques in production, post-production and distribution of traditional linear video, students have the opportunity to experiment with video content in the context of Augmented Reality on mobile devices. Each thematic unit will be accompanied by student research presentations on relevant artists from the course reader "REWIND - A Guide to Surveying the First Decade: Video Art and Alternative Media in the U.S., 1968-1980."
