Topics vary and are announced during the preceding quarter. Taught by UW faculty and visiting artists, engineers, scientists, and humanities scholars.
'Persistence of Vision: Documenting the University' will provide students an opportunity to learn the basics of video and sound production while discovering the diversity and richness of student life at the University of Washington. Students will work in small groups to make short documentary videos that will introduce other incoming-students to the culture of the university. Students will learn about the history, techniques and theories of filmmaking, with a focus on the documentary form. The final videos will be shown at UW's New Student Orientation. This course can be used toward completion of the Visual, Literary, and Performing Arts (VLPA) requirement.
