Introducing Film Studies: newest course in the visual arts curriculum

This course introduces students to film analysis as a means of engaging more deeply with cinema and culture. The goal is to provide students with the tools to understand the technical and aesthetic dimensions of film, and how they come together to create meaning. The course includes a brief history of cinema; discussions of genre, style and narrative structure; and an overview of the formal elements of film production (writing, direction, cinematography, sound, film editing, and production design).
