Course detail

Studio IV - Video - summer

FaVU-B4VI-LAcad. year: 2020/2021

The content of 4th year is creating the bachelor's practical work. Students should be able to apply the acquired skills and knowledge within the longer period of time. It is expected that practical work will become a concentrated output confirming the author's current views and gained knowledge. The final output should be formally at a high level and it is expected to be also on a high level in all technological aspects of working with the moving image, as well as artistic quality. The work should show a high conceptual level and content. The student should be able to clearly articulate his next artistic program which would eventually like to develop in the master study.

Course curriculum

Author´s projects and their practical realization within the area of new media. "Vertical" deepining of already found creative issues. Immersion to one´s own single projects. Studio teachers specially focus on the issues chosen by students and deal with them during consultations. They recommend special literature or mediate contacts with other teachers and experts (from another studio or college). This results in team work, where the teacher becomes a kind of co-author, due to his participation in the creative process... This process serves as a condeptual preparation for bachelor work (in the summer semester of the fourth year).


Students focus on the realization part of their BA exam. They search for the most suitable topics and for the way of its creation with respect to its future presentation. At the same time, they submit the project of their MA studies for approval.
