The URI Department of Art & Art History’s studio courses in video and multimedia focus on many aspects of 4D art production and presentation. This includes courses that teach hands-on production skills (video capture, composition, lighting, audio recording), post-production skills (video/audio editing and compositing), animation techniques, as well as skills needed for students to present their projects in an ever-expanding digital landscape (live, web, and mobile platforms).
