Course Content (Syllabus)
English 1 explores three styles of film: realism, classicism and formalism along with three broad types of cinema: documentaries, fiction films and avant-garde movies. It explores the interdependent relationship between subject matter and form and its significance for movie-making along with how this relationship impacts the choice of shots and angles, color and its symbolism, filters, lenses and gauges. These choices contribute to the fantasy/reality that is the cinema.
