From ‘video essay’ to ‘video monograph’? Indy Vinyl as academic book
Author(s): Garwood, Ian
Sarah Barrow argues that the video essay provides a ‘viable alternative to the academic book’. This article explores that claim, considering how a video essay-based project can pursue a single topic in the man-ner of a monograph. The case study is Indy Vinyl, my collection of video essays and writing about vinyl records in American Independ-ent Cinema. I argue that an approach informed by traditional schol-arly values should be augmented by more exploratory thinking, when moving from written to practice-based forms of film criticism.
