V8351: The Cinematic Coin: Technical and Artistic Sides of Film in Spark 2014 (Mar. 15 - 16, 2014)
This class will dive into the world of cinema by focusing on filmmaking and film projection! The filmmaking segment will take into account topics such as theme, narrative, aesthetic, and framing, among others. We'll watch a few short films (domestic and foreign) and then dissect them with topics we have just learned. The film projection segment will take us into the realm of 35mm film. We'll look at different image and audio formats, the inner workings of a 35mm projector, predecessors to 35mm, and the future of film in theatres. Each portion will take approximately half the time.
