Video essays have become important in media studies. For students, they open up alternative methods to express themselves in audiovisual form, integrating theory and practice. The analytical goals of video essays are the same as those of written assignments; to present critical analysis of media products and experiences from a specific perspective. Video essays are attempts at combining the existing visual material to offer analyses in a number of creative and analytical perspectives. The workshop is meant to introduce us to different approaches and tools to create video essays.
The workshop will be offered by Laura Deutch, a Philadelphia-based media artist and educator working at the intersection of documentary, new media and participatory art. Her work focuses on community stories and place-based histories. Her films and media projects have been showcased on television, at festivals and in gallery settings throughout the country. She currently works at PhillyCAM and coordinates the Philadelphia Youth Media Collaborative. She serves on the board of the Termite TV Collective and holds a BA in Media Studies from Ithaca University and an MFA in Film and Media Arts from Temple University.
We are very pleased to welcome Laura Deutch to Arcadia University and we look forward to your participation!
