In recent decades, the use of video developed in many ways. With the advent of programs like Final Cut Pro, artists can now edit digital film by themselves. The Rijksakademie has a large studio, several cameras and workstations.
At the workshop, residents are not only supported with recording and editing video, but also advised on the choice of the final medium. Will it be a DVD, or as these days is more common, a digital player or Blu-ray disc? It’s also possible to work with older analog media, such as 16mm film, or even VHS. Residents periodically experiment with video work with special sizes and surfaces.
Like Istvan Ist Huzjan who in 2009 projected on fluorescent dye, that absorbed the light of the video, and Harald Breejen who made a complex installation where video was projected on the surface of a glass cube.
