FILM 220 Film Form

An introductory-level lecture course designed to introduce students to the formal issues involved in the production and perception of moving images. The course provides students with an understanding of aesthetic concepts that support the making of films, digital cinema, videos or video games. It reinforces the use of aesthetic vocabulary and demonstrates how audiences interact with, and are manipulated by, film language and syntax. Therefore, the course is useful for students who wish to enhance their skills in the making of films and videos as well as for students who wish to refine their ability to deconstruct motion pictures for critical and analytical purposes.
