HMS-340E Topics in Cinema/Media Studies: The Documentary Image
2:00 pm – 4:50 pm
Engineering Building, 203
This course introduces students to the history, theory, and practice of making documentary images in photography and video. In addition to reading/viewing visual/critical works and writing short critical and evaluative essays, students will learn to use the basic photo/video tools in Apple's iPhoto and iMovie applications to produce individual and group photo-essay and digital video shorts, and then assemble these with iWeb to display on their own websites. Class time will be split between these academic and 'praxis' components.
