NEW VIDEO COLLECTIVE
2 Day Intensive >> Saturday and Sunday, October 15&16
10am–5pm Saturday, 10am–8pm Sunday, Studios 20A + 8, $250
New Video Collective is a hands-on, weekend studio class where students bring their ideas to make digital videos while forming an art video collective. Using their camera, external or in-camera microphones and scanned material, if desired, students will learn basic shooting, importing audio and editing while making videos on one of the most advanced and popular editing programs available, Final Cut Pro. But no previous editing or video experience is required, only familiarity with computers and a video editing program at home (iMovie, FCP, Premiere, Windows Movie Maker, etc.) In addition to discussing and viewing students’ works, a brief history of video art will also be discussed. On Sunday evening we will have a final screening of the new works we’ve made. And for the next few months afterwards we will release a new video every few weeks under the name of our new video collective.
Make sure to bring your camera phone, camcorder, DSLR, or compact digital camera, or all of them, an external hard drive for Macs, and scanned images and previously shot video, if desired.

PLEASE NOTE: Public Education courses are held contingent on a minimum enrollment, which is determined two business days prior to a class start date. Public Education Staff will contact you ONLY if there is a course cancellation or change.
What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. Visit the SFAI website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.
What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.
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.
SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
