When we watch a film, the experience tends to wash over us. We pay attention to the story and recognize its effect, but we may not notice techniques that move us—the underlying anatomy that makes up each film. In a series of eight two-hour sessions, Vanderbilt faculty members in Cinema & Media Arts lead interactive discussions on the primary categories of film technique and the aesthetic experience of the moving image.
Seminar sessions will progress and build on each other—replicating the creative process of film production and the aesthetic choices made at every stage that govern the look, sound, and effect of the final work of art. Along the way, we will watch clips and discuss techniques within the context of film history, genre, and the key movements that revolutionized how a film could be made and watched.
