This workshop is designed for visually oriented professional media artists who are interested in an expanded, hands-on approaches to recording and presenting video. Pollard, Brouillard and Moore share their skills and experiences in the development of in-situ installations and performances that capture the human form in movement and deploy a variety of video display technologies. Participants will begin by recording video material in a studio environment, allowing them to control lighting and to work with high contrast imagery along with some green screen production. This material will serve as a basis for the subsequent creative and technical exercises involving editing, composition and presentation technologies.
