Studio artists and craftspeople have long understood the value of exploring materials, engaging in sustained practice, and putting the objects they make into action in the world. In contemporary times, the medium of video offers an exciting and powerful tool for exploring these and other concepts, in direct conversation with a wide variety of viewers. Intended for studio artists and craftspeople who are unfamiliar with the use of video, the workshop will cover the basics of shooting, editing, and processing video. Students will make and present one-minute long videos over the course of the workshop, and will gain the tools to continue to explore this exciting medium. No experience necessary.
Supplies and Preparation
- students must have access to a video camera or phone that shoots high-quality video
- students have basic mac proficiency
- students should bring an external drive to store their final video, or should be prepared to upload it to storage on the cloud
- students must come to the workshop with at least 1 hour of footage already shot
- preparatory materials will be sent out in advance of the workshop, detailing some tips for shooting good quality footage, and some examples of artistic strategies
