INTERMEDIATE TO ADVANCED VIDEO PRODUCTION
8 Sessions >>Tuesdays, February 28-April 18
7:30-10:30 pm, McMillan Conference Room and DMS2, $350
A digital camera is required. Computers with editing software will be available to use at SFAI. A working knowledge of filming on your camera and editing on Premiere or Final Cut Pro is necessary.
In this video art course, participants will make a short experimental film focusing on excess & exile, the sublime and the subversive. Participants will write, film, and edit a transgressive short using extreme film practices. Classes will alternate between film screenings and analysis, lo-fi tips and techniques, workshops on students’ in-progress films, and time to edit. Each student will have the opportunity to present the class with their favorite underground, cult, and freaky short films and film clips.
Queer, feminist, and anti-racist work encouraged!

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.
