CORE1025 - Introduction to Film and Video
This is team-taught, integrated art history and cinematic arts class. It introduces first year students to the discipline of cinema through a combination of studio-based projects, lectures and discussions on the evolution of cinema. The Art History section features topical lectures, class discussions and film critique relevant to in-class screenings. The course engages lecture, discussion, projects, activities of critical inquiry, observation, analysis, research, and writing to hone aesthetic vocabulary and communication skills. Students will learn the relationship between history and practices; learn theoretical and applied components of moving image production; and discover the multiple tasks involved in making professional, commercial (theatrical, advertising, television, etc.), documentary, and experimental works. This course acts as the foundation for Cinematic Arts majors and a robust introduction to the field of Cinematic Arts for non-majors, and prepares them for further studies in film history, Cinematic Arts tracks, advertising, animation, motion graphics, and other courses of study.
