Pigeons, balloons, kites, aircraft, satellites, telephones, webcams, carcams, and bodycams have been used to record moving images of regions, communities, and people. In this intermediate level video production workshop, we will look back at these images -- contemporary and historic examples produced by individuals, corporations, and international government surveillance programs-- that observe, track, and survey as we discuss secrecy, technology, and shifting attitudes towards privacy. Working both individually and in groups, students will create work in response using devices that document from the ground, the sky, and the body. Hands on workshops will introduce students to modes of aerial image acquisition, as well as skills such as lighting, editing, sound recording and design. We will follow a workflow that includes research and development of an idea (designing, planning, and scheduling), production (building, testing, recording) and post-production (editing and revision). Readings will include historical, theoretical, and literary texts. There are required weekly screenings and workshops.
