Art & Design in film is an elective unit involving close visual analysis of selected feature films. While embracing theoretical concerns the primary emphasis is on the visual component of the film and the unit is therefore particularly suited to Art Design and Architecture students.
The unit will involve a close analysis of films by exploring certain themes and visual strategies. This will be done in the context of cinema history and theory. Students will also be set creative tasks culminating in the production of a short moving image work or a cinema-informed artwork.
On successful completion of this unit, students will:
Three assigned written/visual projects totaling 100%
4 hour lecture + 8 hours private research per week
3 week intensive program (144 hours total study)
