BIS 472
Bothell Campus

Advanced Media Production Workshop

Provides focused study and production in a specific area of media arts and practice. Recommended: BIS 343.

Class description

Documentaries, PSAs, music videos, ten-second commercials – how do these short-format visuals convey a message? One effective way is through a story. This course is an exploration of new media in the construction of narratives – as visual tools for communicating information, whether in the form of data based on field research or creative expressions drawn from personal experiences. In small teams and as individuals, students will think about and tell their own visual stories with campus resources available, including use of the Digital Media Lab UW2-121. Theoretical and practical readings, plus in-class review of examples of photography, film, video, hypertext and other visual media will provide the basis for class discussions, but significant time will be reserved for critical and constructive feedback on original student projects as they progress.
