Hello my name is Alex Barrera I am a Visual Arts major studying the craft of digital video and film. I enjoy making films that explore things that have yet to be seen. I am interested in taking the trivial and unimportant and shedding new light on whatever topic it might be. I create documentaries, short films, as well as video installations for art galleries. I believe that digital video is at the head of the art world and that it is a very refreshing medium to work with. I am interested in this class because I believe it will help me explore the backgrounds of the technology that I use everyday. I also believe that these sort of newer technologies are very essential for creating art in this day and age.
