This is a video editing course. We will create four Mood Films with each focused on a particular color for the class. The students will learn through lecture, discussion, and video. In this course we will interact during asynchronous video sessions and online discussions. To complete the assignments each student must have access to a computer or device and editing software. I recommend iMovie for this course, but you can use any editing software that allows you to add music, trim clips,...
*Students will learn the art of video editing. *They will learn to curate and download images and footage to be used in artistic expression. *We will take disparate parts and create a cohesive whole through the process of editing. *Students will become familiar with the symbolic meanings of common colors. *Students will be challenged to focus and apply what they learn about color theory to the design and production of Mood films.
I teach film at a University in Chicago. I have a great deal of experience teaching introductory film courses to undergraduate and graduate students. I also really like teaching introductory film courses and think editing is a great skill for anyone to practice. Art is a wonderful avenue for self expression. I think it's important for everyone to have some form of artistic practice in their lives.
Homework assignments will consist of reviewing short videos and readings as well as short editing assignments which will result in complete Mood films. Students can then share their films with family and friends. Each week students will upload their completed films to Vimeo for sharing and discussion.
I will provide readings and links. The stock footage we are using is free to download. If students already own a computer with some sort of editing software (Macs come standard with iMovie, etc.) they should not need to make any purchases.
Each week I will review assignments and give feedback.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be pulling clips from the website: www.pexels.com/discover/. I have reviewed most of the content and it's generally appropriate. However, if the students put in a search word like "romance" or "passion" they will get images that are suggestive but not explicit. Because these films are emotionally driven students may choose to search terms like "rage" or "despair." If strong emotion is uncomfortable for them it's important to encourage them to be conscientious about their search terms.
