This class will cover basic concepts and techniques for composing abstract video art using Magickal techniques. While it is recommended to have some kind of live method for generating video (feedback, synthesis, apps, live coding, light manipulation etc), this class is open to anyone who creates video by any methods available. This class will also heavily feature discussions and everyone will be expected to contribute at some point. Participants in the class will be given homework to create a new short (60 seconds or less) video piece every week based on a specific prompt and each class will begin with selected screenings and discussions of homeworks.
