ART 399: Video, Design, & Community has several goals:

  1. To learn about the histories, practices, politics, and ethics around community-based media projects
  2. To develop collaboration and group communication skills
  3. To learn to effectively communicate the message of a group using video
  4. To introduce students to the fundamental techniques of digital video production
  5. To cover basic technical information related to cinematography, camera operations, video formats, and editing with Final Cut Pro
  6. 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.
