This e-brief presents a case study of a one-semester transdisciplinary experience involving three courses into the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. Participating students from the Film and Media Post-Production Capstone II and Advanced Sound Design courses in the Sidney Poitier New American Film School’s undergraduate program, and a Music Composition course in the School of Music, Dance and Theatre, experienced during the Spring semester of the 2020-2021 academic year a completely remote Post Production process of approximately twenty, approx 10-minute long short films, showcased at a virtual live event on April 30th and May 1st, 2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. On a student-centric constructivist standpoint, inspired by Paulo Freire’s pedagogy approach of raising students to be subjects and not objects of the world, the experience explores remote learning tools to develop not only hands-on immersion into techniques and workflows, but most importantly agency ecosystems where students can explore film departments’ power dynamics and develop interpersonal skills aside to a diverse set of cultural and socio-political mindfulness. Focusing on sharing the strategies and findings of a work in progress, this initial study aims for further developments and to establish hybrid remote and in-person experiential frameworks for the transdisciplinary engagement of sound and music in the visual arts.
