Obsah kurzu

This course explores how visual images (concentrating mainly on photographs and film images) are constructed. It analyses the use of various aesthetic and design elements used by image-makers and the effects of these elements on the viewer. It is in lecture/seminar format in which students are given simple practical as well as theoretical assignments to enable them to experience the effects of these dynamics for themselves. There are both slide and video presentations to support the content of the lectures.
