Video Art Boot Camp is week long series of classes.  Anyone with any experience level is welcome to sign up. the goal is to have a finished short video art piece recorded by the end of the camp.  




Who is this class for?

 Anyone who wants to get more experience working with analog video mixers, analog video signals, video synthesis, video feedback, and live video performance. 




What do we do in this class?

we start from the basics: feedback chains with cameras, monitors, and mixers, and then work our way up to planning and composition, live performance, and finally capturing our analog video signals and creating a finished video art piece.  





How is each session organized?

session 1 & 2 : gear basics:
    *cameras & monitors.  different kinds of sensors, different kinds of displays, how they affect feedback and how they affect signals in general.   
    *processors: ‘enhancers’, and proc amps 
    *mixers: internal feedback, more complex video fx, keying and wipes 
    *video samples: rpi sample players, vhs players
   
session 3: assembling your setup:
*everyone will choose the equipment they’d like to use for their rig.
*talk about how to map out signal flows.  taking notes on ins and outs, fx documentation etc



session 4: practice time!  set up your rig and figure out some different modes you can move into.  goal here is to get some documentation on yr phone that you can use to map out how you’d like your final recording to go.  at the end of this session everyone will give a short demo and walkthrough of how they intend to use their rig.

session 5: everyone records their final piece

SHARE NIGHT - optional post class get together where everyone can share their finished artworks
