This workshop was first offered in June 2015, with 14 participants and numerous guests coming together to create a memorable two weeks and an ongoing community of practice. Here are some relevant materials growing out of that workshop:

Five participants (Allison de Fren, Shane Denson, Patrick Keating, Jaap Kooijman, and Michael Talbott) published videographic essays that they started at the workshop in the journal [in]Transition, via a special issue emerging from the workshop. Two other participants, John Gibbs and Jason Mittell, published videos from the workshop in other issues of [in]Transition.

Workshop conveners Christian Keathley and Jason Mittell published a short book, The Videographic Essay: Criticism in Sound & Image (caboose books, 2016), that discusses the workshop’s approach and exercises. The book also features short pieces by workshop guests Catherine Grant, Eric Faden, and Kevin B. Lee. To supplement the book, a Scalar site compiles examples of workshop-produced videographic exercises.
