Time frame: 08-02-17 'till 09-03-17

Our start is a double meeting on Wednesday February 8th from 13:30 – 16:00 and Thursday February 9th from 10:00 - 12:30.

Preparation for the first session
Video presentation of your idea. This video presentation should make clear the following:
- Your concept (what will it be about)
- Chosen style/form (short movie, documentary, autonomous work, animation, video installation, etc)
This video presentation will force you to start thinking in visuals and have you start shooting footage.

Goal for the first and second session: to determine your scope and have a plan of approach. After these two sessions you should be able to start the production! Bring sketch materials, camera, laptop or whatever you use to get you going!

Meiro Koizumi, Portrait of a Young Samourai, 2009

Introduction

Nowadays we are confronted with a multitude of images which present themselves to us through different screens. From the screen of our mobile phones to computer screens, ATM machines, tv screens, automobile dashboards, tablets, smartwatches, digital billboards, etc.

Naturally one would think that this ongoing visual evolution in our media and internet age has changed the nature of the screen. Nobody can deny the influence of social media, youtube, snapchat or instagram, but on a more structural, technological level not so much has changed. Media theorist Lev Maninov says: "Dynamic, real-time, interactive,... a screen is still a screen. Interactivity, simulation and telepresence: As was the case centuries ago, we are still looking at a flat rectangular surface, existing in the space of our body and acting as a window into another space. We still haven't left the era of the screen." (The Language of the New Media, 2001)

Following Maninov's observation of the screen, we could say that the classical 'viewing regime' – the relation between the image and the spectator – has not really evolved. The frontality, the rectangular surface, the singular image, the immobile viewing, the frame, the physical distance to the medium, all the fundamental characteristics of the screen are still at work.

During this practice-based course we will explore possibilities to create different 'viewing regimes' which move away from the fixed program of the singular screen. We will investigate possibilities for different narratives and meaning to emerge when using multiple screens, split screens and double images. We will look at the work of video artists and filmmakers. We will discuss alternative ways of image making within the Deleuzian concept of the Time-image. You will work with specific techniques and methods of filming, editing and post-production to try and establish new relations between the image and the viewer.

Project outline
During the course you will film several scenes compiling an archive of material to work with for the assignments. The course is linked to the software courses of Jan Guchelaar. You will learn several techniques which you can directly use for our assignments including editing double images, split-screen, multi-camera recording and multi-screen presentation. During the last day of the course, March 2nd, you will install and present your work for the finals to Jan and us. Together we will review the progress and results.
