Episode 70: Ned Stuckey-French—Moving Pictures, Moving Words: The Arrival of the Video Essay
New technologies, such as iPhones, free editing software, and YouTube, have made possible a new literary form: the video essay. In this Eleventh Hour, Ned Stuckey-French will screen some video essays and discuss their form, as well as ways to consider how text might be used as interplay with image, and how video essays might be employed across genres, such as in print, film, and documentary. We will review the elements of composing your own essay, including how to develop a script, edit, use animation, sound, incorporate found footage, and chose a strong title. We will also consider how to share your video essays, in classrooms, curated for online magazines, as well as other ideas for pairing visuals with your literary text.
