FILM 100 Introduction to Cinema: The Art of Making Movies
Spring 2021 Tuesdays 1:00PM - 4:15PM
Students working remotely will be able to take this class, and participate using Zoom®. Assignments and exercises will be conducted using live excerpts from the movies to be watched between classes, along with readings to illuminate the language of cinema.
From concept to screenplay to casting to shooting to post, learn how award-winning and popular cinema is created! Become familiar with the language of the movies, and the ways in which great performances are brought to life and striking sequences created.
We will cover twelve of the greatest—and the most popular—films from Hollywood and world cinema to develop in you a clear sense of what matters in sound & picture, and how the language of the camera, production design, editing, and acting technique combine to produce both blockbusters and critically-acclaimed movies.
This class will screen some of the best films of all time and deconstruct what made them notable. A must for anyone seeking an understanding of film discipline. This course fulfills a Liberal Studies Arts & Literature domain requirement.
