In Search of an Audio Visual Composing Process.
Rules for the development and application of audiovisual material are constantly being redesigned whether one is concerned with technological aspects, economic and policy structures, social impact, or media practice. This paper outlines the work being done by the International Media Literacy Project at the Royal University of London. The project is involved in the fundamental activities of audiovisual composition, but it also investigates ways in which the scope of various media is expanding, like new techniques of image manipulation. It has also been useful for participants to examine the relationship between communicative purposes and the evolution of audiovisual composition and professional media practices. Another job of the International Media Literacy Project has been to explore whether any international compositional forms are developing, and whether they are due to indigenous language, culture, and art. Much of this project research involves global collaborative research comparing how audiovisual composition occurs in different cultural and language settings. This work could provide a framework for devising appropriate strategies for meeting the information needs of the future. (BEW)
