Introduction to the genre - Classic and Contemporary Experimental film:

Experimental and avant-garde film is cinema made outside of the film industry on an artisanal basis, largely without regard to the structures and demands of traditional narrative film. 
Currently, filmmakers are using video and new media of all kinds as well as including film in larger multimedia installations. Scholarship and writing about experimental film run the gamut from deeply personal and casual in tone to highly dense and theoretical.

Discussions and viewings

Introduce ‘Structuralist’ Experimental Project - 4 images, 1 screen, N-S-E-W POVs

• Establish structural parameters by viewing an exemplar “TNDIA TV by John Mandelberg and Janice Abo Ganis.

Using a handycam and tripod, teams established (4 per team) will chose an interesting location to film.
