This course explores the creative use of the video medium as a means of understanding both televisual and cinematic representation and the techniques involved in production of both documentary and narrative works. The technique and grammar of the medium is explored, with students undertaking production work in studio sessions to gain a practical appreciation of the material outlined in lectures and screenings. Screenings are scheduled within the lecture program to give students a common base of experience in the history and creative aspects of the medium.
