Screen-L subscribers with an interest in audiovisual film and screen studies, the history, theory and practice of the audiovisual essay, and the digital audiovisual essay as a mode of assessment, might like to know about this article I've just published in NECSUS: European Journal of Media Studies in which I take stock of my experience of? teaching audiovisual film studies at the University of Roehampton (London) over the past twenty years:

The article documents my early experimentation with the audiovisual essay as a mode of assessment between 1997 and 2002 before focussing in depth on a course I developed in 2002, Audiovisual Criticism, which sought to harne?ss the potential of the then emerging generation of non-linear digital editing software for the purposes of film analysis and criticism. This course has now been taken by approximately 600 students. The article is illustrated by 140 minutes of sample student audiovisual essay work organised into nine themed compilations.

I hope that some of you will find this article and the accompanying audiovisual material useful.

Best wishes,


Michael Witt
