Intro to Film will examine how meaning and feeling is created via established cinematic techniques, as well as the ongoing innovation of directors, cinematographers, editors and others involved in the creative process. Starting with the notion of cinematic language and the relationship between form and content, Intro to Film will examine various types of films (narrative, documentary, experimental), mise-en-scene and cinematography, sound design and editing, acting, and the various ways that film can be analyzed and interpreted. In one month students in the class will gain a greater understanding of the filmmakers’ art and acquire a new vocabulary for describing and explaining the films they watch.
