FILM 2000. Film Critique and Analysis. 3 Hours.

By watching films and film segments from the early silent days to current films, then duplicating these esthetics in our movie studio, students will gain an understanding of how filmmakers created and utilized the equipment and techniques which grew to a powerful means of storytelling. Special attention will be devoted to examples of cinematography, lighting, sound design, and special effects which will stimulate the thinking of students when they create their own films. Examples: DW Griffith's "Intolerance", Carl Theodor Dreyer's "The Passion of Joan of Arc", John Ford's "The Grapes of Wrath", Fritz Lang's "M", Dennis Hopper's "Easy Rider", and The Coen Brother's "No Country For Old Men".
