A major grant from the National Science Foundation is funding the creation of the Advanced Laboratory for Visual Anthropology in the Department of Anthropology at California State University, Chico. Researchers in the new facility will use Red Digital Still Motion Picture Cameras to create documentaries spanning the breadth of the discipline of anthropology. This technology is in use in major Hollywood productions, but so far has not been adopted by anthropologists.
We are seeking graduate students to form the first cohort to use this revolutionary new equipment. Students will receive a four-fields MA in Anthropology, but will make a film in lieu of a thesis. Please visit the Department of Anthropology website at http://www.csuchico.edu/anth/programs/index.shtml for more information and to apply. For further inquiries please contact Professor Brian Brazeal at firstname.lastname@example.org or 530-898-6192.
