ARTS366 / CAMS366
Advanced Projects in Film and Architecture

This advanced-level studio class is for students interested in exploring the relationship between architecture, narrative and digital space. The class will begin with research into filmic environments that utilize place, architecture and objects as narrative tools. We will look at the use of interiors and exteriors, circulation between spaces, and the use of props and/or computer generated imagery to create space. Our focus will be on the construction of cinematic space as a formal and conceptual component of storytelling. Using architecture, installation, performance, film, and literature as guides to navigating both constructed and conceptual landscapes, students projects will explore advanced strategies of image and sound manipulation, both technical and conceptual. Students will develop semester-long projects and will articulate their artistic process through a series of presentations and critiques over the semester focusing on a project that integrates digital and physical narrative spaces.
