Class Details

The course will focus on the creation of screen character and introducing different acting techniques. By means of improvisation, concentration exercises and games, the class will attempt to create a common film vocabulary and understanding through effective analysis of the recorded on-camera scenes. The course will culminate in the presentation of scenes from classical and contemporary film or television. In addition, the students will research one of the masters of the cinema movies — for example, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Ingmar Bergman, Akira Kurosawa, Federico Fellini, Kathryn Bigelow, Francis Ford Coppola, Spike Lee, Darren Aronofsky, etc. The student will give a brief oral report and write a one to three page paper.
