This four-week engagement, led by senior faculty members of the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department at SVA, will immerse participants in the practice of these new technologies. The residency will provide a highly charged atmosphere in which talents participate in productive dialogue and collaborations. Initial sessions will alternate practical studio lab and on-location production using hardware such as the Canon 5D Mark II. Postproduction editing with Apple Final Cut Pro and file management will follow, and we will examine current modes of exhibition and distribution.
Practical workshops will be augmented by seminars exploring the history, theory and conceptual issues that characterize the divergences in the production practices of the still and moving image. Critiques of works-in-progress as well as screenings of films and visits to studios, galleries and museums will complement the course work. The goal of the program is for residents to develop their own projects and realize a personal vision in this lens-arts hybrid.
Faculty and distinguished guest lecturers and critics will include Charles Traub, Michelle Leftheris, Grahame Weinbren, Alan Berliner, Jennifer Blessing, Chris Callis, Anthony Forma, Roger Phenix, Bob Richman and Shelly Silver.
Participants have 24-hour access to shooting studios and video labs. Workshops, equipment, facilities, critiques, screenings, history/theory seminars, field trips and consultancies are all included.
Prerequisite: A minimum of two years of college.
Note: A portfolio is required for review and acceptance to this program. A $1,100 deposit for use of photographic equipment is required. Participants will be held responsible for payment of any loss, theft or damage incurred to the equipment.
