Intro to Film Appreciation

In this course students watch effective, well-made films in all genres: thrillers, comedies, documentaries, dramas. Afterwards they discuss them in a seminar style environment, explore the medium, and see where it leads them. Perhaps they will write a short film, shoot it on their iPhones, edit it in iMovie, and present a short festival of student made films by semester’s end, or perhaps they will write critiques of the films seen. In any event, it will enhance the theater going experience in a fun, entertaining and cultural way.
