This course will explore video recording devices and editing software to experiment with video as art. The foundation of the creative projects will be based around the visual components and structure of the moving image. Some aspects of Adobe Photohop, iMovie, GarageBand, and Adobe Premiere will be taught.


Emphasis on the creation of personal projects that expand your creative portfolio and website through the use of video.


  1. Light Sources & Color Temperatures (light quality & temperature)
  2. Exposure Values (exposure and pre-visualization)
  3. Stop Motion -15 (Stop Motion Animation and Photoshop)
  4. Continuous-30 (camera movement, sequences, and the 180-rule)
  5. Still & Video-60 (editing techniques and sound basics)
  6. Personal Project Portfolio (visual interrogation within a personal theme)

3D Strikes Again!


Attached are a few images from the completed Cubic Space Project. Students built 8″x 8″ open cubes (a la LeWitt), then created elements inspired by Serra’s verb list and placed them within the parameters of the empty cubic space.

This project came about after a 15 second conversation with Shaun Cassidy in late August and was made possible with the help of our studio tech and woodshop guru, Andrew Davis and thanks to the peer support of Leah Cabinum and TA, Anastasia Netrebine.

All three foundations 3D 1 classes have been in sync this semester and thus all the projects have had a collaborative feel. This project is no exception. The cubes were designed to be stacked en masse or individually, depending on the space.
