This course is designed for artists who wish to experiment with film to engage with and respond to a contentious topic in the mainstream media and the popular culture. Participants will make a 3-5 minute video art piece that remixes found footage related to their topic, recontexualizing the power dynamics and ideological framework present in the original footage. Topics covered include utilizing video archives, culture jamming, media literacy, copyright and creative commons law. Prerequisite: Basic familiarity with Final Cut Pro or similar video editing program.
