This course serves as a foundation for students interested in video production, motion graphics, and animation. Students explore the language and history of moving images and how artists work with and challenge these processes. The course begins with several demos and exercises combined with research and discussion to develop a final project that reflects individual interests. Students may work with traditional processes such as sketchbooking alongside digital applications such as Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere. Visits to the Art Institute of Chicago, access to SAIC's video resources, and discussion of influential time-based artists such as Tony Oursler, Shirin Neshat, Alfred Hitchcock, and Jennifer Steinkamp support the studio experience. No experience is needed for this course, but computer familiarity is very helpful.
