Full course description

Instructor: Michael Mersereau
Cinema is not just narrative, nor even film. Cinema is a language and philosophy in itself. So much so that we use the terms "like a film or movie” to describe anything more real than our everyday experience. Experimental Cinema Expanded will create a lab of experimentation for students with introductions to techniques with your phone, projections, super8, and the exploration of sound as a synesthesic experience. This course will meet for five weeks at 3 hours per session. A screening and gallery show will follow, open to the public. Each class meeting combines the introduction to contemporary and historical artists working in the medium, technical instruction, and open lab.
Bring your smart phone or tablet. Super8 film and processing is included in class fee.
