We'll go through some of the great films of history with a focus on their achievement in individual elements - whether it be a film that is a great example of use of cinematography or a film that exemplifies use of music or editing or performance.
We will evaluate each film in total with an emphasis on whichever discipline the choice of film is meant to represent. There are so many various elements involved in the making of a film that we can examine in closer detail - writing, direction, acting, cinematography, editing, costume design, production design, score and soundtrack, etc.
Before beginning the course, we will have a virtual free introductory meeting with the group to get a sense of what the individual experiences and interests are as far as the course is concerned. The exact syllabus of the course will be determined from that initial meeting.
