RTA 931

Inside the Frame

What compromises the "look" of a film, television series or other screen-based work? What theoretical approaches and practical decisions determine how a story is told visually to provide the greatest creative value for the filmmaker and emotional impact on the audience? Students apply theoretical frameworks to classic film and television works to understand how elements of direction, visual composition, mise-en-scène, cinematography, editing, production design and technological advances can shape our stories.
