Concepts in 60: Some Thoughts



There is no set format for a Concept in 60 video. The point of the assignment is to encourage you to experiment. However, the work of previous students/video-writers in this course suggests that you may want to consider these issues.

Do you want to work with videos/images that you’ve found ?

  • Ellie Delaney
  • Jessica Liebman

Or do you want to work with footage that you’ve shot or made yourself?

  • Scripted/acted: Sam Weiskopf
  • Live or documentary: Molly O’Neill
  • Animated: Amanda DeFillipis

Do you want to structure your piece as a continuous narrative or argument?

  • Will Kebbe
  • Alex Conaway
  • Ashley Mensch

Or do you want your structure to be more episodic, depending on contrasts and montage?

  • Graham Coughlin
  • Elyssa Issel
