It offers a varied, exciting and accessible introduction to the theory, terminology and history of this increasingly influential medium. During the course you will explore a wide range of British, American and World cinema releases, past and present, learning to analyse film in terms of technical construction, the storytelling skills involved in screenwriting, narrative structure, genre, mainstream/ independent industry production practices, funding and audience reception. You will write critically about film, appreciate the practical subtleties of camera, editing, sound and staging, and investigate the work of
specific directors and stars.
