Film Appreciation

 Explore film as an art form and storytelling medium. In this class we will delve into the narrative ability of film and explore the techniques in cinema that help tell a story. We will be viewing a variety of films in this class throughout multiple time periods. Students will gain a deeper understanding of film from a storytelling perspective and will be well-versed in ideas such as symbolism and narrative tools specific to film such as the use of color, sound, and specific camera angles and techniques to invoke feelings.
