MS 050 PZ -Introduction to Film


Institution: Pitzer

Description: Film and video are often considered to be a distinct semiotic system or art form with their own “language.” This course surveys the variety of structures which can organize moving pictures: from Hollywood continuity editing, Soviet montage and cinema verite to voice-over documentary, talking heads and postmodern voices with no center at all. The course includes silent film, classic Hollywood narrative, avant-garde film and video, documentary and activist video. This course is one of the three prerequisites to many intermediate level and upper level Media Studies courses, including production courses such as Introduction to Video Production (MS 082 PZ).

For up-to-date information on current course offerings and details, please refer to the Pitzer class schedule on MyCampus2 Portal.

Please check course schedule for requirements.
