授業の到達目標
The goals of the course are to understand the different formal methods for reading a movie and applying specific terms for analyzing films. Students will be expected to write papers to show how these techniques create meaning in movies.  

授業の内容
This course will introduce students to the different film techniques that can be used to "read" movies. Movies are unique in the way they convey meaning not only through dialogue and story, but also through its visual tools. Everything in a movie is a series of choices, whether it is the color of the curtains in a room, the placement of a vase, or the editing decisions that place one shot next to another. We will watch short films and feature films and apply film terms to see how meaning is produced and conveyed to an audience using these film techniques.  

準備学習(予習・復習)の内容又はそれに必要な時間
Students will be expected to watch movies, complete readings, and write responses to both. Students will be expected to spend 2-4 hours per week to prepare for the course.  

成績評価の方法
Students will be evaluated on homework, a midterm quiz, and a term paper (700-1200 words).
