Digital Self-Portaits Workshop 1.0: Who am I?
Welcome video artist educators! We’re so excited to be going through this creative exploration with you. Hopefully, this course will allow you to explore and express yourselves using video as a platform. The sky is the limit.
Today, we’ve discussed ways to think about self-portraits and what constitutes auto-biography. Hopefully, we have kept the conversation open but not overwhelmingly limitless.
Now, it is essential to begin to digest and unpack the information we covered today and begin to frame it around you. What do you want to tell about yourself? Are you going deep into the past? Is this a concept that is not bounded by time? How will you tell your story? What media will you use? Will you be opening old shoe boxes that contain photos from your childhood? Will you go out in the world and film? Will you surf the internet for found videos and images?
Remember, we will be keeping these videos to under 5 minutes.
Ok, enough talk, let’s put down our thoughts. Please write your ideas in the comments section of this post.
Matt and Kristin
