FS5021: NARRATIVE WITHIN THE FRAME (2017-2018)

Last modified: 27 Feb 2018 18:26


Course Overview

This theory-led practice-based course will investigate different narrative forms of image making, including paintings, photographs and films by different artists from a range of historical periods.  We will be considering narrative form and content as shaped by subject selection, composition and framing, use of colour or black and white, and control of light.   These themes will be considered from aesthetic, historical and theoretical perspectives.  Through a series of seminars, video production and post-production workshops and screenings, students will learn approaches to moving image making that will culminate in the completion of a practice-based video project.
