ON-SCREEN MEDIA (3.5 credits)

Contemporary screen media production (film, video, digital) is increasingly crossing and recombining traditional media formats in new ways. This minor offers an interdisciplinary approach to a range of audiovisual media that supports innovation and leading edge creativity through its integral multimedia structure. It is designed as a site for interdisciplinary and transmedia discourse and production innovations that encompass film, video and digital media concerns with screen concept, sequence, narrative and storytelling.

An interdisciplinary minor in On-Screen Media is organized around the principle of analogue and digital on-screen relations in technological, process and theoretical terms and is structured around a set of key interdisciplinary concepts: Media History and Theory; Digital Production; Analogue to Digital Photography, Drawing and Painting; Film and Video Production; and Sound Production.
