    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you're a Cinema and Photography major or a Film BFA major, then this course is required for you to take.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about different types of films and what elements correspond with those films. We learned about cinematography, sound, color, mise-en-scene, and other historical aspects of the films we watched.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Whenever you go to study for the midterm or the final, they're very similar, make a chart of the films and on the vertical side of the chart list different elements that occur throughout all films like the ones listed above.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great introductory course to film. It allows you to more deeply understand what goes into making a film, and also allows you to appreciate this art even more.

    Course highlights:

    I love analyzing literature, and found that analyzing films is very similar. It was very interesting to learn about the technical terms involved with filmmaking, as well as the components that can completely alter the way one views the film.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings! Although we go over everything in the lectures, it is vital and extremely useful to know the material beforehand.

    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have been able to use this course in many other aspects of the Park program, as well as in classes outside of Park. Having the ability to express my ideas about a film based on terms and other forms of aesthetics allows me to get my point across, and to further develop my own understanding of a film. It is a great class to take in order to exhibit a professional understanding of the entertainment industry, and I would highly recommend it to any film-lover!

    Course highlights:

    I do not watch foreign films on a regular basis, but this course introduced me to that realm of cinema in a most intriguing way. Based on what I learned in the class, I was able to apply that knowledge when watching foreign films, analyzing and picking apart the plot, the dialogue, and the historical background of the film based on its cinematic elements. This course has definitely heightened my appreciation for all cinema, as there is so much more to films than simply being able to understand a film's native language. Film speaks in other ways as well, such as lighting, music, imagery, and the very movement of the camera itself.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be able to manage your time! Review notes, and do not take the technical terms you learn in class for granted. Most of all, COME TO MONDAY NIGHT LECTURES! You may think you can miss a screening, but it is imperative that you armor yourself with an in-depth understanding of as many of the the films we watch as possible come midterms and finals! It gives you an opportunity to talk about whatever film you wish, and so having watched all of them (and had discussions about them in the discussion sections) only helps you out even more!
