This is the first of three courses designed to investigate key historical moments of cinema and media through close critical analysis. The goal is to develop a sophisticated approach to the aesthetics of cinema and media as the basis of a professional vocabulary and methodology for creative producing. Particular attention will be paid to dramatic structure, meaning, subtext and authorship within specified film movements or niche markets.
