Upcoming Grad Panels

All students enrolled in FVIM 400 and ISMA 400 are required to participate in the 4th year review panels held in the last week of the semester. 4th Year Review Panels provide you with the opportunity for an objective critique of your body of work by faculty not necessarily connected to your curriculum. FVIM and ISMA recognize the value of the panels as an essential part of the development of each student's art practice and learning experience. Any student not participating in the review panel process will receive a 20% reduction in their final grade.
Presentation Details –FVIM and ISMA Review Panels:

• On the day of your review panel you will be expected to present a representation of this term’s project(s). Please install or present your work with care and attention.

• Students requiring equipment from AV (other than the projector/computer set up provided) are responsible for booking, set up and return of equipment. Remember to book well in advance.

• The format of the review may include some or all of the following: updated work to date (a must); a brief verbal presentation related to your work; analytical or critical comments from the panel members; individual questions by panel members; informal discussion and/or recommendations.

• In preparation for the review panel, determine how you will present your work, both physically and intellectually. Be prepared to discuss the content of the work; its formal attributes; medium; the anticipated development of the work; the intentions of the work; and its ideological position or framework. You may also consider discussing the position of this work relative to work by other artists and/or historical precedents.

Course Description

Website catalogue description | www.ecuad.ca This senior studio course acts as a forum for the critical and artistic development of Film, Video + Integrated Media students’ grad projects, which reflect a culmination of what students have learned in their years of study in media. A high level of self-directed activity is expected, along with participation in peer group and class discussion, presentations and critiques. Students will develop their grad project through proposal, pre-production and production phases with the medium, form and content of their choosing.
This course is your segue from student to professional life. Engagement in the seminar groups (both in session with Harry and Fiona and amongst independently meeting groups) should be considered a professional commitment. They should be approached with generosity, supportive critical engagement and in the spirit of professionalizing the work of all of your peers.
