Film Studies

In this course, students consider the medium of film both as audience and creator. Extensive film viewing and analysis are essential course components as students assess films both in and outside of class to develop their own aesthetic values. Students need to be able to think and write critically about film. Students study the history of film and film theory, learn to analyze their experience as an audience and place themselves within the position of director, cinematographer, editor and screenwriter. Students will have a choice for their final project for this course, and final projects may include writing, filming and editing an original work, or presenting a project on a film director, producer, actor, franchise, genre, technology, national cinema, etc.
