The Department of Design Media Arts (DMA) at UCLA is one of America's leading design programs offering a

multidisciplinary education in media creation that fosters individual exploration and innovative thinking.

 

As a visiting lecturer at UCLA / DMA Media Arts, Stagg taught the Media Arts153A Design for Video syllabus designed by Christian Moeller. The class teaches the techniques of conceptualizing and making short films using digital video by leveraging the student’s individual creativity and resourcefulness to bypass the typical financial and technical constraints of a beginning artist.

The following videos are a curated selection of student work created in Stagg's class.
