In Spring 2012, graduate students enrolled in "FILM 230: Graduate Video Production Seminar" made these videos exploring the Fiat Lux images as part of a hands-on introductory video production seminar. The class learned how to use digital video cameras, sound, lighting, computer editing technologies and filmmaking techniques such as interviewing, digital compositing, animation, and the use of archival materials as part of their creative and scholarly research. Bringing critical and research skills to their filmmaking, the class made short essay films using Adams' photographs to explore relationships between the past and the present in the transforming life and politics of UC Berkeley.
