Description: Fundamentals of Film Studies offers film majors a more specialized analysis of formal cinematic elements, and narrative structure while introducing students to the basics of filmmaking and related technologies. It helps film students to articulate the theoretical and practical skills to recognize, analyze, and create the film as an art form. Students will also learn about the principle of “building blocks” and formal elements (narrative, mise-en-scene, cinematography, sound and editing) that constitute the fundamental principles of analysis, genre, style, performance and storytelling. We will also outline, explain, and draw connections among artistic, technological, socioeconomic forces, which have shaped and reflected in the world of cinema. We will concentrate on essential films and directors from around the world to comprehend their contribution to the evolution of film form and content.  In addition to the weekly lecture, screenings, and reading and writing assignments, students will also have the opportunity to put theory to practice by producing short film projects.
