And we are off! Intermedia production courses begin soon

by Tagny on August 26, 2011

Welcome to the exciting upcoming year of Intermedia production courses for 2011-2012. We have many guests and off-site projects planned.(My colleague Matt Soar and I have been busy organizing!) For those of you anticipating your first-year course in Intermedia let me give you a sneak preview.

In Intermedia 1, we are partnering up with Festival du nouveau cinéma to create a zine documenting the events featured in the new media showcase (aka FNC Lab) this year. The festival programmers will be visiting our class to give an in-depth overview of the works featured in the FNC Lab so that students can plan which events to attend in advance. Last year Intermedia 2 students documented The Festival du nouveau cinéma and created a wonderful non-linear database using Korsakow (an open source software program invented by Florian Thalhofer and currently being developed by our very own Dr. Matt Soar (intermedia 2) in collaboration many other talented folk.)

For more information about Intermedia 1, check your Myportal account on the concordia website and log into your Moodle site to view the course syllabus.

A fantastic line up of guest artists and creative producers working with intermedia practices will also featured throughout the year. Some of them include Midi Onodera, Montreal media artist Adad Hannah, and Paris based curator/writer/videomaker, Jens Hauser. Stay tuned for dates, times and event details! We post information frequently on the site so check in and see what is going on. You dont want to miss these events.

I wish you all the best with your studies this year and I am looking forward to meeting many of you. If you have any questions before classes begin in September don’t be afraid to contact me directly.
