Week 12: Introduction to Video Criticism

Monday, April 3

  • Podcast debriefing
  • Discuss video essay and popular video genres (see class notes below)

  • Return & discuss Midterm Evaluations


  • Explore Feminist Frequency and watch at least one video.
  • Share a link to the video and write a brief reaction/response to the video in our Facebook Group.
  • Download and familiarize yourself (including doing tutorials) with a video editing software of your choice. (I recommend Camtasia.)
  • Think about, begin planning, even start recording footage for your next assignment: a video criticism piece.
  • Be prepared to briefly present the type of video criticism you’re planning to produce in our next class.
