We have a diverse collection of disciplinary backgrounds in this class. Moreover, the temporal allotment for Graphic Design this semester is minimal and was compounded by the delay in getting the software. What this means is that there isn’t much time for lecture, theory, or practice. In no way do I intend to minimize the importance of this important art form, but our larger focus on the object documentary requires us to move on quickly. If you are unfamiliar and/or uncomfortable with Graphic Design you will need to take it on yourself to become familiar and comfortable (see links below). Remember, part of your final project involves designing some promotional material for your film. At the very least you will need to design and print a DVD Cover (or some kind of packaging for a flash drive…you might also explore other ways to ‘deliver’ your film). Fliers and Posters are also encouraged! I am happy to meet out of class if anyone has specific questions.
