Course Description

The subject of this course is the poetic, experimental and collective film and video making. It will focus on the methods and results of avant-garde, independent, experimental, artistic and critical film and video productions as alternative to commercial productions that are widespread in film industry. The students will be encouraged to think productively, abstractly, visually and poetically. Students will learn about experimental and collective film and video making. The course will focus on simplifying the visual composition and the components in the scene. The course will encourage students to express themselves with very limited visual elements. The students will be introduced to avant-garde, independent, experimental, artistic and innovative film and video production.

What are the requirements?

  • The relations between stage, picture, costume, space, time, image and motion will be discussed in this course. The participants will have to plan, design and choose the following elements: image / picture, costume, music, sound, time and space, which would have symbolical, ironical, political, ideological, dramatic, comical meaning when they are presented together in a simple moving picture project. They will have the print out the image as big as it should be so that it can be seen in the frame and determine the costumes of the people who will carry the image. The students should decide where, when and how to shoot the people who will carry the images and what the actors / actresses will be wearing in terms of their costumes and make up. In these decisions, the meanings, which will be created through the elements, should be considered in detail in terms of aesthetical and formal unity, visual and symbolical interaction, poetic meaning, political or ideological connotations, ramifications and potential audio-visual projections. The musical and audio-visual materials to be used in the projects should be cleared off the rights, and participants should be careful about using original pictures, images, sounds and music. We look forward to seeing your creative works.
