What is filmmaking course?

A film course (film course) is a study of cinema, in the sense both of the films themselves, but also through the films of the directors and people who made them and the way their works are used and analyzed. There is a need for the film class to have the ability to apply a range of analytical techniques from various areas and to engage in a variety of discussion about different aspects of filmmaking. This is a broad subject, however, and should not be seen as being limited just to the filmmaking art. The course will also touch on other types of cinema such as television, theatre, film criticism and film analysis. The aim of the course, therefore, is to provide an introduction to a wide range of topics relevant to a new student. A film course should also contain relevant experience to be used as a teaching aid. I would suggest that students have had either experience of making film (either as a student or as an apprentice) and/or a working background within the documentary and/or film industry.

A course will be structured around a core lecture-based content programme comprising of one lecture on each of the three disciplines of film, and each class will begin with one lecture by the Chair and then take place over three weeks. At the end of the course a student will have mastered all three disciplines before moving onto an examination, whereupon they will demonstrate their ability to apply a range of technical analysis, criticism and analysis and storytelling skills in relation to the courses main theme.

This course will be about the different aspects of film and film-making, and will provide a range of analysis, critique and storytelling skills to enable students to apply their skills in the film and filmmaking arts.

The core lecture is to cover the history of film and its importance in the culture of our time. For this aim the course should be structured around one lecture on cinema, one lecture by the Chair, and three weeks of discussion and discussion.

During the course, students will study the work of the directors of the major film styles and their contributions to the subject. All three disciplines of film will be discussed, including contemporary and independent cinema, documentary, short cinema and feature films. Topics will also be covered relating to the use of film in the production of various media and in relation to other media. They will also be given an introduction to the methods of analytical critique that will assist in the understanding of the creative process. As well as an analysis based around the three films and their themes
