December 11, 2014

Posted In: Anderson Ranch General

Jillian McDonald & Rick Dailey

DATES: June 15 – 19, 2015

SKILL LEVEL: II – III (A basic familiarity with digital editing tools is required.)

CONCEPT: Juxtapose video art with your own imagination, as you transform still images as well as original and appropriated footage into exciting, strange moving-image compositions. Students can incorporate performance and animation into their projects.

MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students work with various techniques for shooting, digitizing, editing and compositing video and sound recordings. We work with Final Cut Pro and After Effects on Apple computers. Although some equipment is available for check-out, students may bring their own video camera, tripod and any extras for constant access.

ACTIVITIES: We film within the scenic Colorado Rockies and the lighting studio, learning post-production and editing in the digital studio and critiquing works of video art. We investigate various modes of expressive video, including short form, single-channel and immersive installations and discuss contemporary artwork that utilizes these techniques.

FACULTY: Jillian McDonald lives in New York and Canada and teaches at Pace University. She makes videos inspired by popular film genres like horror and romance. She exhibits her work widely and participates in international residencies including the Headlands Center for the Arts in California, the Banff Center in Alberta, Glenfiddich in Scotland, and Lilith Performance Studio in Sweden. www.jillianmcdonald.net
