6 Tuesdays, February 2 – March 9, 10:30AM-12:00PM PDT

In this workshop, we will look at the relationship between movement and video to expand our experience of combining artistic mediums for self-expression. Taking self-portrait materials and the Tamalpa Life/Art Process as a foundation for our multi-media explorations, we’ll use movement, writing, drawing, hands-on camera work, and editing to explore the technical and creative aspects of making a movement video.

As directors of these videos, we will look at how we shape our viewers’ experiences through the use of composition, timing, framing, editing, and storytelling. We can bring our audiences into close intimate spaces of our lives, and invite them into beloved environments surrounding us. The stage can be flexible and changing, the view microscopic or vast.

Materials needed:
A digital video camera (camera phone /DSLR /camcorder /computer camera, etc. Doesn’t have to be fancy). We will be using free video editing software to be downloaded after the course begins. Please prepare a comfortable space to move in with access to your online device and a reliable internet connection. Also, have art supplies ready at hand for drawing activities, and paper and pen for journaling and creative writing exercises.

Participants must have taken a Tamalpa self-portrait workshop or have done the self-portrait process in a Tamalpa training program and be familiar with the Tamalpa Life/Art Process.
