This course will explore and make creative connections between film analysis and film practice. It has a distinctive focus on international, alternative, and documentary cinemas, while also providing a solid foundation in key elements of film history and theory, including Hollywood. This critical appraisal of such a wide range of genres provides a solid understanding of what makes film work well, enabling students to improve their own production skills in camerawork, editing, lighting, screenwriting and production management. Students will gain a strong sense of independent filmmaking practice, and learn to apply their academic knowledge of film through exploring topics including: The formal, social, cultural and political dimensions of films from both within and beyond Hollywood; Fiction film production, including pre-production, camera, lighting and sound; Classics of the documentary form , docufictions and mockumentaries; Collective and individual filmmaking projects; Storyboarding and editing.
