In this class, students will refine the art of cinematic storytelling by exploring various special effects. Focusing on green screens, students will collage found and shot footage to create short films and GIFs, using skills from programs such as iStop Motion, Final Cut Pro, as well as Giphy. Students will take inspiration from early cinema such as Georges Méliès’s, A Trip to the Moon, and contemporary artists such as Shauna Moulton and William Kentridge.
