This course examines the dramatic and psychological effects of the elements and techniques used in film making and television, and some of the salient developments in film's artistic and technological history. This course provides students with the basic tools and methods for film appreciation and study. Students write five two — page exercises, a seven-page analysis of a current movie, and a final exam.
SAC 236 is a pre-requisite course for SAC concentrators, therefore, we have instituted a policy of a rolling enrollment as of this academic term, Fall 2006. While there will only be a limited number of spots open for seniors, juniors, and sophomores, the majority of the spots will continue to open throughout the course of the summer for incoming freshman ONLY. At the end of the summer, the final remaining spots will open for all class levels.
