This course concentrates on close analysis and criticism of a wide range of films, including works from the early silent period, documentary and avant-garde films, European art cinema, and contemporary Hollywood fare. Through comparative reading of films from different eras and countries, students develop the skills to turn their in-depth analyses into interpretations and explore theoretical issues related to spectatorship. Syllabus varies from term to term, but usually includes such directors as Coppola, Eisentein, Fellini, Godard, Griffith, Hawks, Hitchcock, Kubrick, Kurosawa, Tarantino, Welles, Wiseman, and Zhang.
Overview:Students will be creating a video regarding a topic of their choice. In terms of content, it is very flexible. It can be a short documentary, a how-to video, a presentation, a video showing off a hobby, ect. They will be spending most of their time researching and practicing for their video, with time taken aside to collect feedback from their peers in terms of stand-up meetings and exit tickets. After a couple drafts, a final video project will be presented.Thumbnail created by me: Erik Mineer
