Videographic Film Studies

FMMC 0334 Videographic Film Studies
New technologies of digital video production—movies on DVD, DV cameras, and
non-linear editing programs—now enable film scholars to “write” with the very materials that constitute their object of study: moving images and sounds. But such a change means rethinking the rhetorical modes traditionally used in scholarly writing, and supplementing them with a new concern with aesthetics. In this course we will both study and produce new videographic forms of multi-media criticism, exploring how scholarship can itself adopt cinema’s alluring poetics without abandoning the traditional essay’s knowledge effect. (FMMC 0101 or FMMC 0105) 3 hrs. lect./3 hrs. screen.
