ABOUT THIS CLASS

This workshop-style course is an introduction to digital video programming with Max. Students will receive introductory hands-on training in the Max programming environment; a powerful multimedia tool designed for artists. This course will focus on utilizing the visual side of Max, commonly referred to as “Jitter”, by placing emphasis on video performance, interactive video installation, and visual accompaniment to music and theatre. Over 7 weeks, we will be covering subjects such as VJ style video mixing using mobile apps, advanced audio responsive video processing, video tracking, and real-time processing of live video.

This course is designed for artists and musicians looking to incorporate digital video playback, processing, and synthesis into their practice. Students will be able to take the skills gained in the course and apply them to a wide range of visual applications including interactive visuals for theatre and performance, real-time video and VJ techniques for musicians, and generative video installations. The course will focus on helping each student to develop their own projects through hands-on workshopping and in-class practice. The course culminates in a public showcase where students have the opportunity to show their work as installations, performances, or even collaborations with other dadaGeek students.
