ART 399: Video, Design, & Community has several goals:
- To learn about the histories, practices, politics, and ethics around community-based media projects
- To develop collaboration and group communication skills
- To learn to effectively communicate the message of a group using video
- To introduce students to the fundamental techniques of digital video production
- To cover basic technical information related to cinematography, camera operations, video formats, and editing with Final Cut Pro
- To produce a video for a community group in Portland that you have been partnered with.
In the past, students have created videos for the US Geological Survey, Experimental Film Fest Portland, Signal Fire Arts/Environmental Organization, and SoyBeam Miso Company. The 2013 – 2014 community partners have yet to be determined; they will be
grassroots or non-profit organizations who work in the Portland community. You need not know anything more than basic computer skills to take this course. ALSO!
This course fulfills one of your upper-division elective requirements.
