Students in DM 3123 use skills developed in the prerequisite DM 2123 to explore and make the most of digital-video technology. Course themes and material center on documentary and pseudodocumentary forms. Class time is divided among hands-on technical demonstrations, group work and case studies of relevant historical work in film and video. This approach informs the high-quality and cutting-edge results expected from DM students. The emphasis on experiments and group work reflects the realities of professional production.
