|MAAC2022||The Art of Film (Cross-Listed: FILM 2022)||3 ch (3C) (W)|
Introduces students to the language of motion pictures and to critical tools for discussing and writing about the 7th art – the art of film. By studying how movies function aesthetically, and how they become meaningful to audiences, students will acquire critical and formal analytical skills that will both enhance their appreciation for cinema and serve them more broadly as consumers and/or producers of visual culture. Topics will include mise-en-scène, framing, image composition, photographic space, colour, editing, sound, and narrative structure. NOTE: Students can obtain credit for only one of FILM 2022 and MAAC 2022.
