Video/Digital Cinema I: Screen Grammar
Course No. PHV297 Credits: 3.0
This course is designed as an introduction, both to the craft of digital filmmaking and to the appreciation of film as a premiere medium of communication, entertainment, and art. Using the tools of digital cinema, computer graphics, audio and other electronic media, this course focuses on the design elements and thought processes inherent in effective audio/visual communications. Hands-on features work in digital cinematography, lighting, audio production and mixing, and non-linear editing, as well as support activities such as scripting, research, brainstorming and storyboarding. Emphasis is placed on creative thinking and problem solving, with both group and individual projects required. This course is intended to be an introduction to a very broad area, rather than an in-depth concentration in one subject. Required of Photography majors. Open Elective.
Video/Digital Cinema II: Sculpting in Time
This advanced studio course expands upon the knowledge of students who have successfully completed the Digital Cinema I and Studio Lighting coursework. A working knowledge of Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere is requisite. This class is designed for further exploring the use of digital cinema as a cinematic tool, method of artistic expression and communication. Topics include continuity, discontinuity and montage style editing, colorgrading, compositing, special effects and composition within the frame. Emphasizing the relationship between image and sound, we will discuss the concept of sound as a material with basic structural properties that may be manipulated, layered and edited. Students will explore methods of composition using various sound materials in assigned projects.Required of Photo Majors in the Video track. Open Elective. Prerequisite: PHV 267 Video/Digital Cinema I or permission of the faculty.

Visual anthropology is an important growing subfield of cultural anthropology. The course focuses on how anthropologists have used visual media of various kinds, especially ethnographic film, to record, document and study human cultural and social diversity worldwide. A series of ethnographic films, readings and class discussion will explore this method of anthropological data collecting and analysis. As a counterpoint to earlier, popular, western cultural biases in visually "representing" non-western, non-industrial peoples as "romantic," "noble," "savage," "enigmatic," "curiosity," anthropology's film studies sought a stronger objectivity. Did they succeed? Worldwide, indigenous peoples now make extensive use of visual media/communication to reflect on their "contested identities." How has visual anthropology helped in that effort? From the 19th century's still photographs to today's cyberspace, visible culture and visual media interface. The course reviews ethnographic film as part of that communication process. $15 course fee required.
Visual Concepts in Illustration
Course No. ILL371 Credits: 3.0
Faculty John Chuldenko
This course encourages students to develop a confident knowledge of design in illustration, the thinking process, and production techniques necessary to compete in the field of applied arts and prepares illustration students to become working professionals within the marketing communications community. It will motivate the student's visual awareness, teaching the student to conceptualize, design and execute on a professional level. Students become familiar with several techniques used in editorial illustrations, book illustrations, advertising illustrations, as well as many others using an extensive range of materials. Students learn to produce quality illustrations and to be responsible for the conceptual aspects of a project whenever necessary. Offered fall.
Visual Culture + the Manufacture of Meaning
This course will introduce students to critical theories and methods of analysis for interpreting contemporary visual art and culture. Topics include: formalism and stylistic analysis; semiotics and structuralism; Marxist theory; biography; psychoanalytic theory; feminist analysis and gender studies; postcolonial theory; post structuralism and postmodernity; and media arts studies (electronic/digital technologies). Select interpretive frameworks employed in the "manufacture of meaning" will be situated historically and discussed fully and critically, using seminal writings. Required for Visual Culture Emphasis. Offered each fall.
Visual Organization + Media
In this course students will develop better organization and composition, knowledge and appreciation for type, integration of type and grid, understanding hierarchy, and type as creative form. Students within IME take this course to help them consider sound design and layout principles in their own work, and organize information in combination with images created in their specific majors. This course is required for all students in Animation, Biomedical Art, Game Design, Illustration, Photography, T.I.M.E.-Digital Arts and Video majors and is open as an elective to students in any other major. Offered fall and spring.
Visual Thinking in Contemporary Photography
In this course, photographic theories, modes and structures will be examined through the issues of narrative and aesthetics. Students will examine contemporary practices, which have emerged with respect toward photography, and hybrid digital media that transmute photographic theories, concepts, forms, and processes. The course will investigate the ways in which photography continues to affect (visual) culture and the way one perceives and understands. The work of selected photographers will provide a framework for comparing photographic philosophies. Required for Photography majors. Open Studio Elective.
