The Klumpner Chair uses and innovates on documentary methods to enquire into the urban scale in various modes. Most prominently, experimentation with filmmaking takes place in the Chair Elective course, within the series, 'ACTION! On the Real City', giving students the chance to learn about experimental and ethnographic filmmaking methods in creating short film works.

Over 100 short films have been created by Klumpner Chair students, available in this YouTube Channel:
