Topics include: the frame; mise-en-scene; cinematography; editing; sound; forms of narrative; genres; dramatic, documentary and experimental; as well as the technological and business context of production, distribution and exhibition. Through the close analysis of sequences within media works, students will develop analytical tools that will help them see more in every film, animation and video that they experience.
