Live Video Music Production
In this course, students explore a variety of multimedia software, hardware, tools and strategies useful in creating compelling VJ performances, video and multimedia installations and video mapped projects, especially using “guerilla” techniques (self- produced, low budget projects). The goal is to put more visual performance tools in the hands of musicians, to enable them to expand their musical performances into multimedia and visual realms. Students learn Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Canon SLR cameras, and work in-depth with Resolume Arena, Sketchup and physical object modeling for video mapping. Throughout most of the course, students acquire new skills as they complete a variety of small hands on training projects. Students also enhance their software/hardware/skills learned by creating a visual performance or installation project that is ready for the audiences outside of Berklee and serves to directly support the students’ creative vision.
