Course description

This course provides fascinating insights into the way in which films are produced, in addition to the detailed analysis of some of the finest and most influential films ever made. Significant time is put into the viewing and deconstruction of key films. Students learn the basic technical principles of cinematography, editing and story construction on film. Additional elements include research into the economic and social background to the production and consumption of films in the UK and USA.
