DESMA 153A: Design for Video

Time: Mon. & Wed. 2:00P-4:50P
Location: KINR SO Room S133

Studio, six hours; outside study, nine hours. Preparation: completion of preparation for the major courses. Use of video technology (video systems, cameras, displays, editing, and storage) to integrate image, sound, time, and motion. Emphasis on expression, continuity, and sequential patterns for video communication.

The course hopes to expose video as media for sustained personal expression and exploration and not simply as a mode of production. This course emphasizes experimentation and exploration of possibilities of the moving image through the use of video technologies, including exploring what non-linear editing and other computer software may allow. The course will expose individuals to various forms of time based expressions as well as provide workshops to learn basics of video editing and processing software, if times permits the course will explore storage and distribution methods as well.

Grading Policy is as follows:
All assignments are evaluated out of a maximum of 10. Any work handed in late (including not showing up for a crit session) will automatically be evaluated out of 5 (half the grade potential).
  • Assignment 1 10%
  • Assignment 2 10%
  • Assignment 3 20%
  • Assignment 4 10% (includes 4a and 4b)
  • Assignment 5 10%
  • Assignment 6 10%
  • Final Assignment 30%
Students may miss 4 classes without repercussion any class missed after will result in half letter grade deduction from final grade.
Final Grading will be P/NP or letter grading
