This course is intended for students interested in examining and exploring the tools of media making for the creation of short, non-fiction video and sound projects. We will look at and discuss examples of creative non-fiction works in a range of media including works in print, writing in social media platforms, short video works and other settings. While considering the historical trajectory and the future potentials for non-fiction works students will collaborate in solo or small group projects to develop and produce short audio/visual works that may be inspired by the works discussed and examined in class. The emphasis is on work that considers the possibilities of non-fiction media making, personal journal-keeping and the convergence of disciplinary approaches to the creative process.
