Introducing Writing with a Camera

This site is designed to help you as a student or emerging media maker express yourself in the contemporary media ecosystem. The articles, reference guides, and glossary cover the gamut of moving-image literacy, applied media aesthetics, production techniques, and some history.

If you have suggestions for topics and resources you would like to see on this site, please let me know with a comment below or by using the contact form on this site.

This site is inspired by Alexandre Astruc’s notion of caméra-stylo (camera pen).  In 1948 he imagined that cinema will eventually break free of the demands of classical narrative and images and will become a flexible means of writing with the same expressive power, complexity, and subtly, of written language. I have written more about this on the about page.
