COMM 321 - Form and Expressive Techniques in Film


3 Credit(s)

Involves viewing a variety of classic and contemporary films analytically and critically, based on students’ developing understanding of expressive techniques in film production. Readings are drawn from many branches of film studies and approach film as art, text, and mode of communication. In addition to tests, course requirements will include: viewing all films and film excerpts shown in class, viewing one or more films in theaters, writing analytical responses and critical essays, and participating in class exercises. Some pre-production exercises (storyboarding, scriptwriting) will be required. As warranted.

Prerequisite(s): COMM 120  or LITR 120 .
