Green Screen Art Intrusions (Fall)
Mondays, November 5 - November 26, 7 pm – 10 pm
Instructor: Oliver Husain
Members: $161 | Public $193 (Please note: Additional Materials fees may apply)
Participants will engage with the AGO collection like never before – inserting themselves into their favourite work of art using green screen effects. The workshop will cover basic digital video production and postproduction techniques, producing a series of short videos. Playing with concepts of appropriation, using costumes and props, each participant will perform a playful or twisted dialogue with the artwork of their choice. The results will premiere on the big screen of Jackman Hall.
