DES 2840 - Visual Storytelling

Credits: 4

Formerly: Image Making and Meaning
This course introduces students to the fundamentals of image-making to explore communication, or storytelling, utilizing both  digital technology and traditional techniques. Students develop an understanding of how meaning is constructed through the power of both words and images. Experimental type and image, as well as creating static and motion investigations are woven into projects. Objectives of this course include, but are not limited to: learning creative processes for making images; learning industry vocabulary; developing observation techniques, research and presentation skills; and learning how to successfully produce images for personal, as well as commercial purposes. Digital, physical, and time-based works are explored. Classes include short lectures, discussion of reading assignments, software demonstrations, and in-class studio work. Students are expected to work outside of class to finish projects.
