Course Description

MOVING PICTURES first emerged in the late 1800s and has maintained its fascination in visual entertainment to the present day. Simple, on-screen narratives, like The Great Train Robbery (1903), have evolved into complex and captivating dramas like Casablanca (1942), The Godfather (1972), and Dances with Wolves (1990), as well as into epic masterpieces like Star Wars (1977), Schindler’s List (1993), Titanic (1997), and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

The Language of Filmmaking begins with a love of cinema and a comprehensive understanding of its origins and transformations. This class offers an immersive journey into the inner workings of the film industry and what it means to be a filmmaker. Students will gain insight via interactive lessons in cinema history, critique, screenwriting, and film production to experience how various roles, techniques, and terminology are utilized and discussed by those in the industry.
