Prospecting Televisual Space
Wave Farm Artist-in-Residence Victoria Keddie leads this workshop on the basic mechanics of analog video mixing and direct line broadcast. Using a re outfitted and modified news van [Unit 11], participants will learn the fundamentals of broadcast video, such as 4-channel mixing, luma keying, green screen (sans studio), and multiple live camera use. In addition, participants will explore unorthodox pairings of machinery in generating video content. The studio will be the land where Wave Farm is situated around the site of the Unit 11 news van. All equipment will be provided. Content may be streamed live, broadcasted as part of the July 8 Saturday Afternoon Show, and will also be aired at a future date with E.S.P. TV on Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
The workshop is free, but advanced registration is required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Lunch will be provided. All participants should bring a short video work, photograph, or found object to the workshop and come prepared to be both behind and in front of the lens.
