Do you like reading comics, analyzing films, or just storytelling in general?
Our Decal is dedicated to examining various visual narrative texts in order to teach ourselves, as creators, how to construct our own fictional stories. We'll be looking at films, animation, graphic novels, video games, and other miscellaneous fun things!
Our course involves three main focuses: looking, analyzing, and creating. This means 1) critically looking at various visual narratives through different theoretical lenses and utilizing what we see in order to 2) create a visual/verbal narrative project.
These texts are meant to be jumping off points from which students can explore their own creative practices and expansive modes of storytelling. As a result of the course, students will be able to critically look at media representations and meanings in multiple cultural and identity contexts, observe technical aspects of both the visual and textual, and apply their learning by producing a final creative project.
All students welcome!
In-class will be divided into two parts: discussion and informal lectures or workshops. Out-of-class assignments will be dedicated to engaging with the visual texts (films, graphic novels, etc.), readings, short responses, and/or workshop assignments. In addition, some time will also be dedicated to working and workshopping final projects.
Our class is P/NP, graded on the following:
►Attendance and Participation (25%)
►Self-screenings and Readings for discussion (20%)
►Short Responses and Workshop Assignments (20%)
►Final Project Drafts and Final Presentation (35%)
No day(s) left until application deadline!
