ENGL 3820 - Introduction to Film Analysis

5 credit hours
This foundational course in film studies is a requirement for all majors and minors and is intended as a prerequisite for all subsequent film classes. It introduces you to fundamental areas of film form: the frame, narrative, mise-en-scène, cinematography, editing, performance and sound, offering you a vocabulary for the formal analysis of film aesthetics. We study the operations of each of these formal parts in detail and then consider how they work together. This course is an introduction to the specific critical methods necessary to describe, analyze, and appreciate the film text.

Terms Typically Offered: Twice per year
