I’m Brad Olson, and I’ll be your instructor for ART 350: Writing with Video!
I’m looking forward to another great semester teaching one of the best classes on campus (in my humble opinion). I grew up in a small town not too far from here, and came to the U of I to study art. I eventually took up Art Education as my concentration and after pursuing a Masters degree and starting doctoral studies, I’m still here!
I’ve been making videos my whole life, but it wasn’t until I took this class myself as an undergraduate that it really began to take shape. This course quickly became one of my favorite and most memorable experiences of my college career, and it helped me to develop a greater interest in the narrative and expressive nature of video. I hope you’ll find this course as rewarding as I did!
