The motion picture medium (be the distribution mechanism the movie theater, cassette, tv, or most recently the internet) has evolved through the practice of making. Filmmakers learn by example of others constructing in and for the medium. Today, digital video tools for capture, editing and distribution are increasingly mobile, networked and available to a broad spectrum of amateurs. Access to these tools by self-forming communities can generate innovative approaches to video messaging and story construction. This course presents theoretical and practical issues related to production, distribution and community construction in shared video environments. Students will develop 2 projects - one documentary, one fiction - which are constructed for a networked environment.
