Our regular critical reading and writing workshop, facilitated by Breanne, offers additional time and guidance for seminar tickets and other writing assignments. If you attend, you are expected to have done the reading assigned for Tuesday and to bring a draft of your seminar ticket (or an upcoming essay). These sessions are Mondays 3-5pm, tomorrow through week 9 (except February 15, Presidents Day), in LIB 0412 (inside library, basement).
We are working on a second date (probably a Thursday) to teach optional proficiency sessions for the 16mm transfer station. Those of you who learned the equipment on Friday may want to schedule time to digitize your final film from last quarter! When you do this, PLEASE copy the file to Orca – to share with your group, your classmates, and as a backup. There’s a folder for this at Workspace > -Digitized 16mm Projects > Final Projects.
Since two of the assigned texts have the smallest print in the reader, we’re temporarily making them available as PDFs so you can zoom in if needed:
I also promised that I would share this optional article that I found too late for the syllabus – it relates most closely to week 5, but you may want to check it out while you’re thinking about public access TV:
William Merrin. 2012. “Still Fighting ‘the Beast’: Guerrilla Television and the Limits of YouTube.” Cultural Politics 8(1): 97-119
UPDATE: Julie’s lecture slides
Please watch this YouTube playlist at home. You can write one Screening Journal sheet on the Burns & Allen episode and one on whatever strikes you in the other short videos.
You should also watch one television episode of your choice and write Screening Journal notes about it. You can include this selection in your seminar ticket.
I recommend that you also watch the classic I Love Lucy episode “Lucy Does a TV Commercial” (1952) but I couldn’t easily find it for free. It’s available on Hulu with a subscription (or free trial) or YouTube for $1.99. Make sure you pay attention to the commercials!
This playlist includes season 8, episode 1 “The General” of The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (1957) and the following short videos:
Origins of the Motion Picture (1956)
no screening journal necessary
The Movies Begin DVDs
note: Evergreen’s copies are checked out currently, although we are trying to recall them. Naima’s personal set is on CLOSED reserve (cannot leave the library).
single combined screening journal
The Great Train Robbery (1903) – screening journal
Edison Company (all three films) – screening journal
Pathé Freres – screening journal
Onésime, Clock-Maker – screening journal
Laughing Gas (Edison, 1907) – screening journal
Frankenstein (Edison, 1910) – we had some extra time at the end so we watched this for fun, no screening journal necessary
Here’s an update on screening materials for today – there were a few changes from the syllabus:
We had a special viewing of Avida Jackson’s “Civil Projections” (2015) on 16mm – this is unavailable to watch on your own, but if you want to re/watch you could speak to her about a command performance.
We did NOT watch Bruce Conner’s A MOVIE, but the DVD is on reserve (and you can also find it on YouTube) – it’s a very famous found footage piece and we encourage you to check it out on your own.
Here’s further information about counteragent’s “She Blinded Me with Science”:
Instead of “Alone, Life Wastes Andy Hardy” by Martin Arnold we watched “Passage à L’Acte” (1993) – these are on the same DVD.
Everything else was as listed!
