We are delighted to present today the first of what we hope will be a useful series of practical guides to the processes of making essays in video form. New Zealand-based film and media studies academic Miriam Ross, author of the brilliant Vertical Framing Video Essay, has teamed with Greer Fyfe to produce six well-illustrated guides to making video essays, covering in detail such practical aspects as downloading audiovisual content, editing your own content, creating a mash up, sharing your work, and extra software. All of the guides are available as downloadable PDFs at the following page:
- Greer Fyfe and Miriam Ross, ‘How-to Video Essays’, The Audiovisual Essay: Practice and Theory of Videographic Film and Moving Image Studies, March 2015
We have also published another new page today linking to existing online resources for teachers wishing to use audiovisual essay formats in their pedagogical practice. You can find that page here:
- RESOURCES for teachers, The Audiovisual Essay: Practice and Theory of Videographic Film and Moving Image Studies, March 2015
If you’d like to offer your own guide(s) to making audiovisual essays, or to suggest additional resources to link to at the above page, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please email us on reframe[dot]us[at]gmail[dot]com. Thank you!
